The story of Death Has No Dominion exists within their music. It is not a story that begins with the phrase “once upon a time” and it does not unfold chronologically. It is implacable, built on atmosphere and emotional heft rather than centered on actual fact. If you listen closely, you can hear it, the tale of two musicians who found an inherent and inspirational connection in the juxtaposition of themselves.

Danish-duo Death Has No Dominion’s self-titled album is out now on SQE. The New York Times T Magazine chatted with the band about the new album, their roles at the Danish clothing brand Libertine-Libertine, and the making of their new video for “Coming Like A Hurricane.” In addition to The New York Times T Magazine premiere, the video for “Coming Like A Hurricane” which was directed by Dan Elhadad is available to post and share via YouTube. Last week The AV Club ran an exclusive album stream and said, “Fans of Dungen and The Tallest Man On Earth might like Death Has No Dominion…Tracks like “Harvest” and “Poughkeepsie Exit” are emotional and dramatic, telling the story of the band’s journey through both aural space and to the Rubber House, a New York building once owned by Willem Dafoe.” Wondering Sound described “Coming Like A Hurricane” as, “a stark, chilly acoustic folk number pulled along by soft, ethereal vocals and a drifting, ghostly melody. It’s the kind of thing you might hear drifting in the breeze through a forest in the middle of the night – spectral, soothing and ominous at the same time.” Death Has No Dominion is available now on CD in the SQE online store and digitally via iTunes.
