“…should get the pulse racing…”
– The Line Of Best Fit
Penguins Kill Polar Bears return with their debut album Building Homes From Broken Bones, out 7th April 2014. The album is the follow-up to their 2011 EP Sapling, which raised rock hairs and post-rock eyebrows from the likes of The Line of Best Fit to Rock Sound, This Is Fake DIY to Clash Magazine and everyone in between.
You can listen to and download “Scarce”, a track taken off the album, on SoundCloud
The album is an atmospheric genre bending masterclass that fans of Mogwai, Aereogramme and Explosions In The Sky would happily have in their personal collection. Each song flows effortlessly into the next with the boys taking their songwriting to a new level, smoothing out the rougher edges of their previous EPs and transforming their sound into something more intelligent, thoughtful and esoteric.
Although they take the music seriously, their influences stretch far, from the aforementioned post-rock greats to Smashing Pumpkins and Limmy’s Show.
PKPB have already played sold out shows with The Twilight Sad, And So I Watch You From Afar, The Xcerts and British Sea Power, even ‘the curse of the merch stand’ hasn’t put them off playing a blinding live set; every time they’ve set out on tour their merch stand has either been robbed or set on fire!
Now the line-up is complete with Gregor Graham taking on bass and vocal duties, the Linlithgow lads – Ben Proudlock, Fraser Sanaghan and Kieran McGuckian – are ready to represent as one of Scotland’s finest young exports.
Building Homes From Broken Bones is released 7th April via So Say We All.
