Share new single ‘Sublimate pt. II’

New album Twilight Splendour due 22nd March
via Blank Editions

London five-piece Housewives return for more anarchic genre-blending adventures on their second LP, Twilight Splendour; a synthesized collage written in Wetherspoons, cafes and anywhere away from their houseboats where they could find a permanent electrical supply.

Exploring the possibilities of electronic sound, this new LP marks a turning point for the band – who sold their guitars to buy midi equipment and swapped London rents for water habitation. Bringing to mind the digital meditations of legendary producer Oneohtrix Point Never and the claustrophobic sampling of Animal Collective and BattlesTwilight Splendour presents a love letter from an early AI to its owner, its concept-led songs strewn with “ecstatic messages of frustration and a desire to connect”.

Their latest single ‘Sublimate pt. II’ is a melancholic anthem wrapped in sugary, ecstatic, pop gloss, which sees the band explore new relationships of separation, belonging and the claustrophobia of freedom ‘faces drenched in blue light’ ‘cosy in the covers, backs to each other’. With its heavy synth bass, ecstatic midi choir backing and buoyant saxophone lines, the song takes on the effect of cathartic release as it ponders the unchallenged life‘never dream for more than boredom, now defines us’.

The track is also available as a special edition lathe cut 7″ direct from the band, limited to just 50 copies.
