This is another single from the band’s forthcoming album ‘Standing at the Floodgates’. White Count follows on from ‘A Blackout for the Bloodsuckers’ which I have recently reviewed. A tour to promote the release of the album is due to start this month.
Both the track and the accompanying video are a mix of the personal crossed with Ultravox, Interpol and Editors. The video is militaristic in approach seemingly focussed on both human and biological warfare which makes for interesting viewing. The strongest feature is the intelligent and thoughtful narrative lyrics which are by turns provoking and chilling supported by music that is equally provocative and unsettling.It all makes for what promises to be an arresting album.
