At first glance this looks like some new type of dance craze that’s about to take-off. It’s no PSY, but the dance is somewhat amusing. Manchester’s Dutch Uncles are about to release their fourth album Out Of Touch In The Wild.
There’s been no great reinvention, just great progress: this is a refined version of Dutch Uncles doing what they do best: making labyrinthine pop of Escher-like complexity and crystal clarity. Unlike previous outings, Out Of Touch In The Wild was written and conceived as a full ‘studio’ album, allowing for greater creative freedom, more sophisticated arrangements and a much larger sonic palette, seeing them utilize strings, piano, analogue synths and tuned percussion more so than guitars.
