Dummy will release their new album “Mandatory Enjoyment” via Trouble in Mind Records. The group has shared a new video for the hypnotic album highlight “Atonal Poem.” Where much of the album finds the group turning up the fuzz or creating a more layered shoegaze and noise pop sound, “Atonal Poem” is more serene and soothing, which the group attributes to being “obsessed with new age music.”

In a statement, Alex from Dummy says, “We were listening to a lot of very peaceful music played on malleted instruments. It’s kind of like, wouldn’t it be funny to try to write a song like this? Why not break the rules? Why not challenge the expectations, especially within yourself? We wanted to create something uninhibited and untethered to convention. We had no idea where it would take us, but this track was the result. In the mythology of the record, this song represents the visitor’s journey home, far away from the atrophy and decay of life on Earth.”

The band has also shared an influences playlist on Spotify, featuring songs from Silver Apples, Mariah, Antena, Sun Ra, Stereolab and more. It’s an eclectic blend of music, with some influences that might not be so obvious on first listen.

The group said in a statement, “Here’s a playlist to accompany our new album, “Mandatory Enjoyment.” We tried to make it as honest as possible; some of these tracks are directly referenced on our album. Others inspired production or aesthetic choices.”
