Perpetually melancholia new-wave outfit The Brixton Academy have a new album out on September 28, called Bright As Diamonds. This follows last year’s achingly gorgeous Vivid and end-of-year EP L.O.T. The song titles hint that TBA are still being TBA…”Neons Bright,” “Youth,” “Real Romance” etc etc…which also means plenty of emotional sharing via a vaguely Muppety voice.
Amazon Japan has samples of every song for your listening pleasure now, so go spend a few minutes previewing TBA’s forthcoming. Even better…start saving up cash to buy a copy!
(Ominous note: I’ve actually listened to this album but am staying mum because…well, time will reveal that. But one detail…”Two Shadows United” is some sexy, sexy music.)
