  • Dalhous launch The Composite Moods Collection series with new LP image
  • Dalhous's next album, House Number 44, is the first in a new series called The Composite Moods Collection. This new endeavour follows Marc Dall and Alex Ander's R.D. Laing-inspired trilogy, which started with 2013's An Ambassador For Laing and ended with 2014's Will To Be Well. The Composite Moods Collection "examines the relationship between two individuals co-habiting the same confined space—their interactions, their sense of self and each other and the pregnant space in between," according to label Blackest Ever Black. Like the Scottish duo's previous work, House Number 44 concerns itself with mental health, centring around the protagonist's co-habitant who "appears distinctly unwell—detached, isolated, often feeling helpless and unable to influence the world around them." The album tackles this with individual mood pieces meant to "convey a bipolarity of mood, each movement contradicting or erasing what came before, making progress impossible."
