NEW MUSIC: Popstrangers | Country Kills

20140327-123030.jpg

New Zealand expats now based in the UK, Popstrangers already have a new album in the can and ready for release on May 27th via Carpark Records. Fortuna follows their excellent Antipodes LP, my favourite NZ album of 2013.
‘Country Kills’ is a tad less noisy and chaotic than their debut yet it still possesses their wonderful knack for chorus melodies. By the second chorus they’ll have you singing along, hook firmly embedded in your ear canal. The verses have some subtle shades of The Cure in them, suggesting the band are sonically venturing into darker and moodier territory.
