The eponymous debut album release from Liverpool-based trio, All We Are, is released on 5th January 2015. The slick, falsetto harmony-driven, I Wear You, will be released as a single on 3rd November 2014. The accompanying video, directed by Kate Moross, brings the album artwork (designed by Leif Podhajsky) to life.

All We Are are a global gathering made up of Ireland’s Richard ‘O Flynn (drums, vocals), Norway’s Guro Gikling (bass, vocals) and Brazil’s Luis Santos (guitar, vocals), who met at university in Liverpool.

Written initially in a cabin in the isolated Norwegian mountains, with follow-up sessions in a secluded cottage in North Wales, the album was finished and perfected in their studio in a disused school in Liverpool. The record was then recorded in London with producer Dan Carey (Bat For Lashes, M.I.A, Hot Chip).

A total democracy, the band write all music and lyrics together. Inspired by a shared love of hip-hop and soul music, Guro calls their sound “psychedelic boogie”.

Born of long, late nights, dreamy melodies, supple psychedelics and gorgeous midnight disco grooves – this is the sublime, swirling sound of All We Are.

All We Are will be available on CD (DS091CD), LP (DS091LP) and Digital (DS091D). A limited edition LP featuring a bonus 7” with the tracks ‘Reach’ and ‘Just Give It To Me’ will be available through Dom Mart.
