These New Puritans first arrived with some very low-fi strange stop/start almost shouty indie around 3 or 4 years ago. There was something interesting about them then and their first album was interesting but never likely to change the world. It was the kind of album which could lead them to something of a musical cul-de-sac. So I didn't expect much from sophomore effort "Hidden". There is still a similar approach to the vocals here and some of the writing mirrors the first album, the familiar should check out "Attack Music" and "Fire-Power" to see this, but that's really where the similarities end.

The band admit they were inspired by Benjamin Britten's "Peter Grimes" and the music of Steve Reich and the result isn't so much a transformation, it's an absolute revolution. Sonically ambitious this blends almost everything from drumming remenicesnt of Japanese Kodo, ornate brass and string arrangements, a children's choir, hints at classical minimalism, occasionl nods to something close to industrial bands such as Test Department it fuses indie, electronics, and a whole lot more. Challenging and brilliant lead single "We Want War" sums it up beautifully darkly crahsing unrelentingly through its seven minutes. It will undoubtedly alienate a number of fans of the first album yet those who like the ambitions of Owen Pallett's Heartland will probably understand this album immediately. There is also a sense of dread and numerous allusions to war throughout the album add to the dark sense of foreboding here.

Like it or not These New Puritans have produced a compelling and distinctive second album with many highlights.

Thirty or forty years ago people looking to the future did so with a mixture of excitement and wonder. It hadn't been long since man first bounced across the surface of the moon and space exploration still offered up many possibilities to those who dared to dream and wonder. Star Wars and Star Trek were the most popular shows on television because they presented scenarios in which even the most humble cave dweller could fly a jet fighter into the heart of a planet and destroy it in an interstellar firework display that would bring him fame if not fortune nor further acting roles.

Over the years the stuff of science fiction became the stuff of science fact as egg heads and boffins became increasingly more ambitious. However, we are only five years away from having to accept that hover-boards and self drying jackets were the stuff only the imagination of Hollywood script writers could conjure up. But then again back in 1985 there were no working time machines either; the DeLorean itself was impractical, let alone the flux capacitor.

Even when 2001 rolled around and there was no Space Odyssey to be seen and people began to stop dreaming. However, the catastrophic and world changing events of that year pointed to a much more terrifying future than anything that Kubric could have predicted, and as oil runs dangerously low and ideological beliefs clash with increasing violence one thing is made abundantly clear: The Future Is War.

These New Puritans are the sound of the future. Not only do they pedal a good line in sonic frequencies that can prick the hairs on your neck up to razor sharp spikes, but they also specialise in doom, terror and militant beats, albeit militant beats that will have you dancing as opposed to marching.

After witnessing this band at Offset Festival 2010 I bought this album and it really is an incredibly ambitious album that took just a couple of listens to wamr to and a couple more to become obsessed with. From the opener Time Xone which has a victorian warm feel to it, i remember a similar opening track on Badly Drawn Boys The Hour of Bewilderbeast and after witnessing live what can only be described as DIY deep electronic with wind and brass instruments and choirs I wasn't really sure what to expect. The album then moves into more electronic and works fantastically with the singers unusual un-tampered with normal vocals, and i mean normal in the nicest way, he sounds so genuine and believable in a way i have only heard from bright eyes, graham coxon and others i love so much. The music has a klaxons Myths Of The Near Futureand M.I.A Kalatype feel to it, some radiohead in the music too, not copied by any stretch of the imagination but in the way it sounds like it has been created and done without unnecessary over complicating. 'We Want War' is one of my highlights and 'Three Thousand' is my current favourite, it could have featured in a futuristic version of 'Nightmare Before Christmas' not sure why i think that, but it does sound incredible. 'Hologram' has this great almost radiohead like piano playing, sounds nothing like Pyramid Song but makes me think of that a bit. 'Attack Music' is another highlight, incredible, deep electronic with shouty lyrics that makes me want to listen to MIA's albums again,. probably also in it's political sounding, the childrens choir in the choruses have that 'Another Brick in The Wall' Pink Floyd vibe, which i love on this. 'Fire Power' makes me think of M.i.A's BirdFlu with it's drums and shouty vocals. There really is not a not amazing song on this album.Read more ›
