Fjord Rowboat - Under The Cover Of Brightness
Do you wish Interpol could still make albums the way they used to? Were you left unsatisfied by the latest Black Rebel Motorcycle effort? Are Editors getting just too electronic for you?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions I have a solution for you. It comes in the form of Under Cover Of Brightness, the forthcoming album from Toronto's Fjord Rowboat (out June 1st).
What the band gives us on this album is post-punk the way it used to be. The record is a collection of songs, sometimes gauzy, sometimes dreamy, sometimes angular, but always shrouded in a dark atmosphere.
The vocals are throwbacks to vintage shoegazer. They are moody, often delivered with a sense of detachment or hopelessness.
When all of these elements come together, they form a perfect storm for the fan of '80s Anglo rock. One listen to the gloriously sinister "When I Speak of Violence" and you will be hooked.
