Belle and Sebastian has always held a special place for me over the years. But personally, the dancy vibes felt off the first single¬†hit me in an entirely unexpected way. I wasn’t sure what to anticipate¬†for the remainder given my love for that “classic” sound B&S are so well regarded for. I mean, this is Belle and Sebastian just gettin’ it! Different, but entirely welcome!!
Since that pre-order back in November, Newbury Comics has secured the rights to giving this one a limited, colored vinyl run of their own! Details just below!!
Belle and Sebastian are an indie pop band formed in Glasgow in January 1996. They are often compared with acts such as The Smiths, and Nick Drake. The name Belle and Sebastian comes from 'Belle et S√©bastien', a 1965 children's book by French writer C√©cile Aubry, later adapted for television and an anime. Though consistently lauded by critics, Belle & Sebastian's "wistful pop" has enjoyed only limited commercial success.
Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance is the long-awaited follow-up to 2010's Write About Love. Produced and mixed at Maze Studios in Atlanta by Ben H. Allen III, best known for his work with Gnarls Barkley, Animal Collective, and Raury, among others, the band - who have been listening to things like vintage Detroit techno and Giorgio Moroder - have brought a dance-party element (and a disco song about Sylvia Plath) into their gorgeous tales of sensitive souls navigating a world gone awry. It is perhaps the most inspired and wide-reaching album Belle and Sebastian have ever made.
