Following their critically-acclaimed UK Top 20 album “As Days Get Dark”, Arab Strap return with their 2nd long player for Mogwai’s Rock Action Records. “I’m totally fine with it don’t give a fuck anymore ”
The album examines many more urgent, timely themes, such as conspiracy theories, online addiction, and the forgotten souls of our seemingly connected planet, all wrapped up in the most adventurous earworms of the band’s career. The result is a record loaded with what Moffat calls “a quiet anger”, an album with equal parts rage and love for “the tangible world and intangible world, and which one you choose to believe and engage with.”
Almost 28 years after their debut, Arab Strap have never sounded more essential, and this new record is a fierce testament to their laser focus on wider horizons. Written and performed exclusively by Malcolm Middleton and Aidan Moffat, and finessed with longtime collaborator Paul Savage, the album furthers the band’s transformation from swooning, slow-core romantics to raging, alt-pop chroniclers.
