Detachments – Detachments

Posted in Detachments, Indie on 22/09/2010 by redo


The first album by London-based group Detachments is slated for release this fall on Thisisnotanexit.

Since their debut two years ago, Detachments have forged a post-punk inspired sound that’s earned them comparisons to OMD, New Order and The Cure. But their music has a strong electronic side to it as well, giving the band considerable crossover appeal; RA’s William Rauscher described the band’s debut EP as “an immaculate marriage of groove-centered post-punk and early acidic Warp-style synth percolation.” Their album was produced by Simian Mobile Disco’s James Ford, and will be preceded by a single for the track “Holiday Romance,” featuring remixes by Scottish duo Wrong Island and analog techno stalwart Andy Blake.
