Blaqk Audio: Bright Black Heaven Out Now

Bright Black Heaven is finally available this week, and so incredibly well worth buying. Having firmly cemented their place on our Top 10 albums of the year, Bright Black Heaven now needs to find its place in your cd collection. If you are old enough to remember the heyday of bands like Erasure, Depeche Mode and The Pet Shop Boys who are clear influences on the choices made on this album, you will be insanely glad to hear this band to pick up the mantle of brilliantly stylish electronic dance music and run with it right into the present. Conversely, if those bands are a bit ancient history to you, you will be fascinated to find how personal and engaging this bit of Bright Black Heaven, can be when so much electronic music of today feels kind of cold and impersonal. If you are already an AFI fan, make no mistake, this is certainly different. However, like the stunning side projects from people like Brian Fallon coming out this year, it will make you love Davey and Jade in a whole new way.
