No other pairing in the history of Darkwave ever matched the unfettered creativity, resolve, and DIY tenacity born from the collaboration between the two creative minds that comprise Lebanon Hanover.

The meeting of the Swiss musician Larissa Georgiou, aka Larissa Iceglass, and British artist William Maybelline a decade ago in the latter’s hometown of Sunderland in the UK was a monumental occasion reverberating throughout the European music scene and even across the Atlantic.

At the dawn of the global pandemic, where dystopian nightmares that were only ever seen before within the pages of books and flashes of silver screen celluloid have become a daily reality, a new kind of darkness envelops the world. It was at this moment Lebanon Hanover returned, sharing a glimmer of hope with the single “The Last Thing”, the duo’s first song from their forthcoming sixth studio album Sci-Fi Sky.

Now Iceglass and Maybelline have unveiled the second single from their best album yet with “Digital Ocean”—a song which features a melody that would be at home on early Cocteau Twins records, whose oceanic guitars and drum machines crash like breakers against the rhythm of Maybelline’s baleful growl.

Watch the video for “Digital Ocean” below:
