Neils Children, one of our favourite noughties acts, have announced they will release their long-awaited new album 'Dimly Lit' on March 21 through Boudoir Moderne Records.
They have also unveiled the video for "Trust You" the first taste of the album, which you can watch below. The song has been added to our current playlist www.koolrockradio.com.
The band with a new lineup, John Linger (Guitar/Keys/Vocals), David Smith (Keys), Brandon Jacobs (Drums), and Syd Kemp (Bass) were back in the studio in December 2012 to produce their first full length album since 2009's 'X.Enc', and they promised it will be their most exciting, original and powerful work to date.
According to a press release the new album delves deeper into the personal music tastes of the group, pulling together a sound that owes much to their love of psychedelic music past and present, whilst retaining the urgency of their previous work. Throughout the album there are aural fragments of the sophisticated French pop melodies of Gainsbourg's late 1960s/early 1970s output, alongside the experimentation of groups such as Broadcast, Stereolab and Silver Apples. It marks a milestone of maturity in the bands songwriting and development.
