A Cause In Distress, the enigmatic Southend duo making waves in the experimental indie music scene, unveil their debut album, 'In Search Of Spring,' on November 3rd, 2023, via Cool Thing Records. This eagerly awaited debut promises an eclectic musical journey inspired by the likes of Boards of Canada, Nine Inch Nails, The Smile, and Fugazi.
'In Search Of Spring' marks the culmination of A Cause In Distress' musical evolution, building on the acclaim they received for earlier singles, which caught the attention of BBC 6 Music (Steve Lamacq), Radio X (John Kennedy), and Absolute Radio (Frank Skinner).
The album showcases the band's artistic versatility, evoking a wide spectrum of emotions and euphoria reminiscent of Depeche Mode's iconic Violator era, with subtle hints of Tool's depth and the rhythmic angularity reminiscent of Joy Division.
Guiding the album's development is the esteemed producer Rees Broomfield, a pivotal figure in the Cool Thing Records collaborative community, known for his work with artists like Beckie Margaret, Indian Queens, and BLAB. Broomfield's production has solidified A Cause In Distress as an intriguing and unique force in modern music, seamlessly blending soulful melodies, hypnotic soundscapes, angst and an ever-evolving artistic palette.
