Detachments debut album is out now on Thisisnotanexit Records. Featuring 11 tracks as recorded earlier this year in the coldest February for decades Detachments debut album is wildly ambitious and takes the 80s synthpop blueprint and updates it for a modernist oos audience. Imagine Hurts if they'd listened to Cabaret Voltaire and OMD and Depeche Mode rather than Westlife and the best of bits from The X Factor.
You can also get a limited 300 only 12" of the new single Holiday Romance featuring remixes from Cosmo and Andy Blake. Andy Blakes 17 minute take has been called "the remix of the year" by Slutty Fringe and "brilliant" by Simian Mobile Disco. Sounding like Throbbing Gristle meets Phuture its a sensational redux.
For those of you in London town Detachments will be celebrating the release of the album with a special London show at CAMP in Shoreditch on Tuesday 5th October.
Doors from 7.30pm. Tickets are £6.00.
Final Detachments show in the UK for a while. They're heading off to France and Spain after this.
