‘Environment’ is MY DISCO’s most uncompromising recording to date. Written
over a two week period during Berlin winter 2018, the band decided to let their
surroundings shape the sound of their new material. Recorded in a place that
has seen Einsturzende Neubauten, Keiji Heino and Pan Sonic pen works, the
band became immersed within the confines of the space and immediate
surroundings and set to create a record that has become a dark and intense
departure from their previous releases.

began a process of refining their minimalist approach to creating music. Metal
hand percussion, synthesisers and drone box guitar effects all became a unique
and integral part of creating ‘Environment’.

Obstructures instruments designed specifically for this album is what makes
both ‘Environment’ and MY DISCO so versatile, challenging and indeed a
product of their surroundings.
