CD

Released: 23rd Apr 2012

£4.99


8th studio album from the portland band sees their informed pop touched by the noisy energy of grunge & a distinct gothic edge.

opening bars of rumbling, fuzz bass show the dandies aren’t slinking subtly back, but bursting on the scene with a renewed vigour to their achingly cool pop compositions. they take in a variety of influences, through rowdy ‘in utero’-esque wig-outs to the hushed lyrics, haunting, meandering melodica, spectral backing vocals & dubbed out insinuations of ‘well they’re gone’, the ‘iggy-synth-pop’ of ‘enjoy yourself’, swooping, echo drenched ‘80s goth-pop referencing on ‘rest your head’ & the spaced out, ethereal acoustics of ‘don’t shoot she cried’.
