The Pre New

Music For People Who Hate Themselves

from the house of earl brutus comes a new and exciting proposition: a chaotic reflection of modern living - haunted by both past and the future, this band present something truly warm intriguing and beautiful, reflecting an age when pop music wasnt a dirty word. this is a rebellious snapshot of modern european living. kraftwerk induced electronics collide with angular rock - twisted and at times hilariously satirical lyrics analogue synths verses scorching electric guitars as loud as concorde. this is a truly magnificent piece of work that, if there is any justice, music for people who hate themselves by the pre new will win the mercury music prize hands down. including a duet with sarah cracknell from saint etienne
