We're approaching the turn of the year - and you know IF those Mayans got SOMETHING right at last, it might be the last and final of them all. So really, now is the time to take a look back at what happened in 2012. A rather memorable musical event that comes to mind was Spleen United's gig at Reeperbahn Festival in September. Those sleek Danes put on quite a show. Electropop at it finest, heavy emphasis on electro.
The quartet is actually releasing its new album School Of Euphoria this week - and listening to it makes the Poule all sorts of euphoric (ba dum tsss!). High speed electro beats, massive synths, you know, all the good stuff. I know bands hate being compared to other bands, but 1) The Spleen Uniteds are surely not reading this and 2) try and stop me, so if you're digging WhoMadeWho or Sweden's Slagsmålsklubben, Spleen United will be rrrrright up your alley. Attached is their new single and the album's opener Days Of Thunder, comes with a video too. School Of Euphoria is out this Friday, November 16th.
They are best to be consumed live though, and as luck would have it they're playing a couple of shows in Denmark starting next week. Then, in January they'll regroup for an extended German tour, playing Berlin the 24th and Hamburg the 26th among others - given the Mayans actually fucked up their calculations of course.
