Change Your Mind is the anthemic lead single from Attaque‘s debut album ON LY OU, set for release on October 27th in the United Kingdom and Europe, and features Adam Pleass from Qtier. Currently picking up regular BBC 6 Music plays, it’s a work of shoegaze-electronica which shows again what a remarkable debut album it’s shaping up to be.
What do you do when it looks like you’re finally realizing your life’s dream of making it in techno; when you’re at long last turning up on the playlists of the scene’s biggest DJs and being whisked to all corners of the globe to play to packed-out, rapturous dance floors? For Colchester based electronic producer and multi-instrumentalist Dominic Gentry aka Attaque it was the moment to hang up the headphones and make a beautiful electronica record with breathtaking songs, ethereal textures, intelligent melodies and not a single club track in sight.
ON LY OU is a remarkable debut which marries Attaque’s mastery of forward-thinking electronics and beats with epic shoegaze guitars. It’s a record which puts him up there with the most pioneering figures in electronic music, giving the likes of Bonobo and Moderat a serious run for their money. The lead single is Change Your Mind, a breathtaking slice of Attaque’s emotive and melodic electronica.
Radio 1 and Mixmag heaped praise on his early techno releases as he appeared on some of Europe’s coolest electronic labels. A revered Boiler Room DJ set soon followed soon but it was after he had played his first show in Japan when he came home to the UK and realized he no longer felt inspired to make 4/4 music for 5 am at dark, sweaty raves. He called time on touring and locked himself away for a full year to craft his debut artist offering. The result is a stand-out work of contemporary production which traverses cutting-edge electronica, shoegaze and heartfelt pop.
Attaque’s ON LY OU is set for release in the UK and Europe on October 27th, Germany on October 25th and Australia on October 24th.
