The Mary Onettes new album Hit The Waves

Postby empyrean » Tue Mar 05, 2013 10:00 am

Next Monday, March 11, Swedish synth-pop fourpiece The Mary Onettes release their third album, Hit The Waves (artwork above), out via Labrador/EMI.

Their follow-up to 2009's Islands, it's wrought with 80s-indebted fluid guitars and strident snares, and frontman Philip Ekström occasionally channelling Robert Smith, all of which amounts to a gloriously melodramatic LP, aided by Dan Lissvik on production duties, adding his trademark glacial sheen.

Black Sunset doesn't strike me as something that I'll like. Maybe it will take a few listens.

I can't get into any of the songs on the new album. Liked them better when they used to sound like Echo & the Bunnymen.

I have mixed feelings about their new sound. While it's not what I'm used to hearing from them, I don't hate it and look forward giving the new album a few listens to get used to. Something tells me that hearing this Black Sunset live will offer more of that organic feeling.

Sounds a bit like "China Crisis". Should be popular in the Philippines.
