Pour It On
Released: 20 June 2015
“Classic house-tinged characteristics prop up new wave vocals and synths…overall slick and dance-floor ready” Clash
Pour It On is the new album from New Build
Recorded at their own Lanark Studios in Shoreditch and Club Ralph in West London with Mark Ralph (Franz Ferdinand, Clean Bandit), the 10-track self-produced album follows their 2012 debut Yesterday Was Lived And Lost.
An unashamedly electronic collection, and featuring the vocals of Al Doyle (Hot Chip, LCD Soundsystem) alongside Felix Martin (Hot Chip) and Tom Hopkins, Pour It On is a cohesive and assured record of rich, monolithic dance music. With shades of The Human League, textures reminiscent of Caribou or Dan Avery and vocal turns right out of Richard Thompson’s songbook, it explores the outer limits of the pop-song-structure.
An anthemic set of bold statements, Pour It On lyrically addresses very human concerns; broken lives, frustration, fear & confusion, whilst simultaneously celebrating the resistance of the human spirit.
