These New Puritans
Hidden

(Domino)
Releasing: 18 January (UK), 2 March (US)

Britain’s These New Puritans released a stellar debut two years ago in Beat Pyramid, a record we deemed an 8 and Chris Baynes called an “idiosyncratic, swaggering, and intellectual album, but more importantly for the listener, a damn exciting and original one too.” The group follows with their sophomore effort Hidden this month in the UK, March in the US. The first single, the cerebral and atmospheric “We Want War”, bodes well for the overall quality of the new effort.
