British synth pop/new wave duo Soft Cell (Marc Almond & Dave Ball)) have unveiled their new single "Heart Like Chernobyl".
The song is taken from their forthcoming album '*Happiness Not Included', their first in 20 years, set to be released on February 25 2022. Pre-order your copy here.
Heart Like Chernobyl finds vocalist Marc Almond the focus as he tackles politics, relationships and issues with the media as their trademark synth-pop soundscape takes more of a backseat. Producer/instrumentalist Dave Ball said:
"When I wrote the music to 'Heart Like Chernobyl' it was at the height of lockdown and I had been alone for about 6 weeks. I was feeling a bit Joy Division and recalled their track Isolation. I played, programmed and recorded the track digitally in my home studio - Kitchen Sink Drama. The track title was Marc's idea, as was the subject matter."
