Irish-Canadian project Revolution Above Disorder releases debut 3-track ‘Illuminate’ single, produced by ACTORS’ Jason Corbett

 
Postpunk / nugaze / electro artist artist Revolution Above Disorder presents his debut offering ‘Illuminate’, a

3-track offering that was produced, mixed and mastered at Jacknife Sound by Jason Corbett of ACTORS.

A melting pot of post-punk, psychedelic

rock and electronic music underpinned by raw, sincere vocals, this is guitar-based rock augmented by synths,

drum machines and heavily treated

instrumentation with a spine of pure melody.

Revolution Above Disorder is the solo moniker of Dubliner Stephen Nicholas White (The Orange Kyte,

House of Dolls, Magic Shoppe), who is currently based in Vancouver. Revolution Above Disorder’s music is

electronic-tinged post-punk with raw,

honest lyrics driving the songs.

“Illuminate’ is the song that kickstarted Revolution Above Disorder. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, I’d just

come off a European tour with Magic Shoppe and I found myself having to cancel scheduled plans with The

Orange Kyte. In my downtime I began to

reevaluate where I was headed musically and I realized I’d become dissatisfied with what I’d been doing. As I

searched through old demos from the past,

some going back over a decade, I was excited to hear songs with real potential that either I’d abandoned or

just plain forgotten about. I grew interested

in the idea of this modern day version of myself collaborating with my chaotic and directionless former self. I

wanted to finish what I’d started many

years prior. ‘Illuminate’ was the first one I needed to record,” says Stephen Nicholas White.

With ACTORS’ Shannon Hemmett and Kendall Wooding on backing vocals, bandmate Adam Fink on drums,

and Josiah Webb of Magic Shoppe on guitar, the original version is a powerful and euphoric post-punk /

shoegaze single rooted in new wave and

electro rock.  The accompanying video was directed and edited by Eliot Galán of Galán Films, a key creative

in Vancouver’s film & tv industry, starring

Analissa Longoria and Mat Durie.

This release also features the more dance-oriented ‘Illuminate (Delta Omega Remix)’, produced by 

Delta Omega a.k.a. Dublin-based Conor Paxton (House of Dolls, Buffalo Sunn, The Brothers Movement).

“The formidable sonic wizard that is Mr. Conor Paxton AKA Delta Omega is a long-time friend and musical

collaborator of mine. After initially bonding over a mutual love of Death in Vegas, My Bloody Valentine and

Primal Scream, we formed House of Dolls and duly

embarked on many gloriously heady adventures and misadventures across Ireland, the UK and Europe,” says 

Stephen Nicholas White.

“This remix he has done for ‘Illuminate’ is indicative of just how well he understands the essence of what I’m doing

with Revolution Above Disorder. Coming at it with a dreamy,  psychedelic sensibility, it calls to mind peak

Ecstasy-driven New Order, early seventies

Germany, all filtered through an Eno-esque ambient shoegaze lens. I fucking love it. And I think you will too.”

As of October 22, the ‘Illuminate’ maxi-single will be released digitally everywhere, including Apple MusicSpotify 

and directly from the artist via Bandcamp.
