'Gas Lit' is the new album by the multidimensional duo, produced by Ruban Neilson of Unknown Mortal Orchestra. The album was preceded by two singles, the first being “We Are Really Worried About You,” with its formidable saxophone sound, giving way to a surge of crushing percussion and heavy guitar riffs. The second single, “Denial,” is a potent blend of Takiaya’s ominous and unsettling sax that blows wide open into riff city for almost 8 glorious minutes. Both encapsulate their message behind the music: to undermine and destroy the white supremacist colonial framework and to fight for Indigenous Sovereignty, Black and Indigenous Liberation, Water, Earth, and Indigenous land given back.
