Featuring "Severed", "Once In My Life" & "Sucker's Prayer"!
The Decemberists explore a new sound on their inspired 8th studio album Ill Be Your Girl. The acclaimed Portland, Oregon-based band (with nearly 2M adj. albums sales) worked with producer John Congleton (St. Vincent, Lana del Ray) & embraced influences such as Roxy Music and New Order to spark a new creative path, as evidenced on synth-driven lead single Severed.
"Having been together for 17 years, Colin Meloy said that the group aimed to get out of its "comfort zone" when approaching the new album, which included working with a new producer (John Congleton) and exploring new sounds. "On the last record there were moments when I thought I was making familiar choices," Meloy said in a statement. "I tried to be mindful in the songwriting process of challenging myself and being a little more critical. The idea was, how can we be make unfamiliar choices, turn off the light a little and grope around in the dark a little bit?"
"While working on the new material, the Decemberists discussed musical references, such as Roxy Music and early glam, and Meloy described the songs as conveying a mood that reflects the times: "exuberant nihilism, an apocalyptic dance party was what we envisioned," Meloy said." - rollingstone.com, January 17, 2018
