It is officially fall you guys!! Just as we say a nostalgic goodbye to summer, we can say hello to cozy weather, pumpkin spice lattes, blazers, and good music.
The dance punk duo, Death From Above 1979 has finally comeback after a hiatus/breakup in 2006 and it’s been 10 years since they have debuted “You’re A Woman, I’m A Machine”. With a new album titled, “The Physical World”, the sky is truly the limit for DFA 1979, it reminds of us why everyone was gut wrenched to hear of their disbanding but were thoughtful to think of their crew before themselves when they broke up and makes them all the more endearing.
You know how when you love an album or song, you will replay it until you run it to the ground or end up despising it; the process of loving an album too much and then not hearing it for a very good while makes you appreciate the album, band, or song much more. Many people questioned why they broke up in the first place. Stardom was few steps away for them and they decided to cut it short and gracefully bow out. They were recently interviewed for Rolling Stone magazine and Jesse Keeler said “I just don’t want people to be annoyed by us, you know?” and it makes sense especially when fans lash out, for example, the whole U2 situation.
From start to finish, Death from Above 1979 hooks you right in with “Cheap Talk”, you can definitely tell the difference between the songwriting and cleaner riffs but still maintaining their original gritty dance punk sound. “White Is Red,” is a great example of how their songwriting has evolved into a more mature sound and the fact that they’re willing to take more risks. They have stayed true to their roots and have expanded even more so into a fresh, new territory.
“The Physical World,” is most certainly an album that will make your week better but your strut so much better. We are very glad they came back. They recently dropped a video for the single, “Trainwreck 1979,” if you attend shows on the frequent like we do then you can definitely relate, love it, and put it on repeat. PLAY IT LOUD!
