Italian label Brucia Records will be releasing Donewiz, the debut album by post-punk/darkwave duo Grieving Sea. The project marks the first musical collaboration between Void (Feed Them Death, Pseudodoxia) and Giorgio Barroccu (Derhead), both co-founders of the record label.
“Grieving Sea was created a purposely unpolished and low-fi blending of disparate genres such
as post-punk, noise-rock, darkwave and romantic classicism” – stresses Void. According to the
vocalist, Grieving Sea can be described only in one way: “Intimate and introspective, with the
aim of conveying a profound sense of calamity.” The description that goes perfectly with the
etymology of “Donewiz” – the medieval name of Dunwich.
Giorgio explains: “Once a busy port situated along the Suffolk coast, now a ghost town that has
gradually disappeared under the sea since the year 1286 due to numerous storms and coastal
Donewiz also features a few special collaborations: Sarah Townley (The Sun and The Mirror)
created a magnificently nuanced cello performance on “In The End”, whilst Danish avant-garde
musician and multi-instrumentalist artist Trine Paaschburg (Mouth Wound) collaborated on
vocals duetting with Grieving Sea’s vocalist Void in “So Pure”.
The album is set for release on July 8, 2022 and is now available for pre-order on CD and digital via Bandcamp.
