Yoyaku will release Zendid‘s debut album, In the Shell.

The eight-track effort is the first time the French duo, made up of Adrien Doumenge and Lenny Mailleau, have featured on Yoyaku’s in house label. After debuting on Body Parts back in 2014, they signed to the Yoyaku booking agency and released on Lamache’s Discobar, Cure Music, and their own Timeframe, launched in 2017. They have also appeared on Yoyaku-affiliated imprints YoY and Aku.

There’s little known about In the Shell, other than that it has been in the works for several years, and it touches on breaks and wonky minimal.

Artwork comes from Yoyaku’s studio, Belastro.
