‘Whiteout Conditions’ is coming out on 7th April via Caroline, and today the band have shared its second track, ‘This Is The World Of The Theatre’. All pretty grand, this.
Talking about the writing of the new record, founder and frontman A.C. Newman said in a statement: “At the beginning of this record, there was some thinking that we wanted it to be like a Krautrock Fifth Dimension. Of course, our mutated idea of what Krautrock is probably doesn’t sound like Krautrock at all. But we were thinking: Let’s try and rock in a different way.”
