“The Bones Of What You Believe”
Released = September 24
Key Tracks = The Mother We Share, Recover, Gun, We Sink, Lies
Is this really a surprise? I’ve been singing the praises of this Scottish three-piece since the time “The Mother We Share” began to makes its way around the indie blogosphere in mid 2012. The band released “Recover” and “Gun” as singles and shared “Lies” prior to the release of the full-length. Hard to imagine it could get any better than that, but amazingly it does.
Ladies and Gentleman The Bones Of What You Believe is truly electopop at its absolute finest. The entire album is solid, each familiar track is front-loaded between equally impressive tracks. “We Sink” could be the best track on the album. Frontwoman Lauren Mayberry takes a break on the track “Under The Tide” and the male vocals remind me of a tune that would fit perfect on a M83 album. This is a remarkable album that I’ve listened to countless times over the last four months. The test will come with album number two…..can’t envision that it will be possible to make something equally spectacular. Can’t Wait!
