Los Campesinos!, “What Death Leaves Behind”

no blues

In completely contrasting ideology to their entire aesthetic, Los Campesinos! have a new record coming out called No Blues. The sadpop six-piece from Cardiff announced today that their fifth album will release on October 29 through Wichita/Turnstile/Heart Swells, and with it, they've unveiled the inspired (per usual) “What Death Leaves Behind”, a verbose, can't-slow-down indiepop track with a pulsating synthy undercurrent. With typicaly narrowly telling and intelligent lyrics (you'll hear callouts to SAT-words like “tautology,” “pormanteau,” and “filigree”), Los Campesinos! appear to grow not just in astutely written pop songs, but in vocabulary. This record, despite its misnomered title, is sure to be an indiepop blast.

No Blues is available for preorder at this link, and will come your way on October 29. You can also download this track through the SoundCloud page below.
