Boris: Drowning By Numbers

The most prolific alternative heavy rock act ever, returns with the announcement of a new album and a first example off it. Boris will be releasing their new album, W, on January 21st, 2022, their first for Sacred Bones, and Drowning by Numbers is the first single and video.

Boris comment on the clip which features dancer Yukiko Doi: “This video was filmed at a private showcase with limited invitation in April of 2021. It is a collaborative performance with a contemporary dance team.  The song was transformed from its original performance and visualized; a big hat dances symbolically at the beginning of the new album.

After the self-release of previous full length NO of which the final track was named Interlude, as the band was planning its quick follow-up, W comes in contrast to the previous album's extremity. With the two records' titles, NO and W, forming NOW, Boris create a pair of individual works which react to one another. In true explorative and venturous spirit, Boris once again appear convoluted, tough to define, yet, strangely charming and inviting.
