A Winged Victory For The Sullen is the project of musicians and composers Dustin O’Halloran and Adam Wiltzie. Three years after Iris, they announced the release of a new album. The Undivided Five is out on November 1st via Ninja Tune. We already shared “The Rhythm Of A Dividing Pair” and “The Haunted Victorian Pencil“; “The Slow Descent Has Begun” is a new excerpt.
According to the press release, On “The Undivided Five” they rekindle their unique partnership for only their second piece of original music outside of film, TV and stage commissions, creating an album that channels ritual, higher powers and unspoken creative energies. Their fifth release (following their debut album, two scores and an EP), they embraced the serendipitous role of the number five, inspired by artist Hilma af Klint and the recurrence of the perfect fifth chord.
