New Year New Music Part Two – Aerial

Hmm, it’s good to see that my New Years Resolution is going well. Six days into the New Year and I’ve only managed two posts so far. And only one in the series of New Year New Music. I’m blaming the snow. *Sigh*

Right, time to remedy that with a new tune by those chirpy Swedes Aerial, who have a new single out. Entitled “Velvet Light Trap”, it’s not quite as immediate as their last single “All Refrain”, but it’s still a fine bit of indie-pop, sounding again not unlike the late lamented Beulah. And it’s not two minutes too short this time. They’ve got themselves a release date for “Put It This Way In Headlines” (Feb 17th in Germany, Austria and Switzerland) and even some live dates round Europe:

Feb 20 Offenbach (Germany) – Hafen 2
Feb 23 Vienna (Austria) – Rhiz
Feb 24 Dresden (Germany) – Conni
Feb 25 Berlin (Germany) – Nbi
Feb 27 Ribnitz (Germany) – Ajz

(Those dates have been cut & pasted from an email, so I’m really not sure about those venue names. “Nbi”? “Ajz”? Eh?)

The album’s available on the website to have a listen to, so make sure you listen to it then order yourself a copy. Take that, Bono!
