Blancmange - Commuter 23 CD

'Neil Arthur is now making the most fully realised music of his life.' - MOJO. 'It's a pleasure to find Blancmange thriving in the 21st Century.' - Q MAGAZINE. Following the critically acclaimed 'music pop art' of the "Semi Detached" album in spring 2015 and Blancmange's first ever instrumental album, "Nil By Mouth" last September, they return with "Commuter 23" - a 14 tracks of electronic minimalism, sharp lyrics and wintry romanticism. The sense of freedom and experimentation of "Nil By Mouth" is still present, but whereas that album had a lighter ambient feel, the textures "Commuter 23" are rougher, more aggressive, ripped out of imagery that flickers between the surreal and the mundane; a sense of humour that is so dry it's almost bleak and then at times sounds like it's rising into a crazy, maniacal laugh.
