New Build - Pour It On
Hotly anticipated sophomore album from Felix Martin (Hot Chip), Al Doyle (Hot Chip, LCD Soundsystem) and Tom Hopkins.
Recorded at their own Lanark Studios in Shoreditch and Club Ralph in West London with Mark Ralph (Franz Ferdinand, Clean Bandit), the 10-track self produced album follows their 2012 debut ‰Û÷Yesterday Was Lived And Lost‰۪.
An unashamedly electronic collection, ‰Û÷Pour It On‰۪ is a cohesive and assured record of rich, monolithic dance music. With shades of The Human League, textures reminiscent of Caribou or Dan Avery and vocal turns right out of Richard Thompson‰۪s songbook, it explores the outer limits of the pop-song-structure.
Topped and tailed by ‰Û÷The Sunlight‰۪, the band‰۪s atmospheric festival set opener, and ‰Û÷Pour It On‰۪ a beautifully crafted seven and a half minute masterpiece, the album is an anthemic set of bold statements, lyrically addressing very human concerns; broken lives, frustration, fear and confusion, whilst simultaneously celebrating the resistance of the human spirit.
