A French Connection2015
Alberteen release their new single ‘A French Connection’ on Rhythm & Noir Records 18th May. It follows their 2012 debut album ‘Metal Book’, which mixed 60’s R’n’B, dark, provocative lyricism and post-punk sonics into their own distinct blend of ‘Rhythm & Noir’. The album picked up great reviews (Uncut 4/5, The Independent 4/5, Louder Than War 4/5) with the lead single remixed by Cornershop and put out as the last ever release on their acclaimed Singhles Club series. The track is lifted from their forthcoming new album ‘Miss World’ (out 25th May), produced by Mike Bennet (The Fall, Ian Brown). It takes the listener around the landscapes and histories of the South-East coast, from the looming presence of Dungeness’ nuclear power station to the Margate mod riots of ’64, through to the MOD research site at Fort Halstead. They launch the album at the Leicester Guildhall on 30th May, with more dates tbc.
