Letting Up Despite Great Faults announces new album

Letting Up Despite Great Faults announces new album

Staking their claim as a top contender among bands with names that are nearly a complete sentence, "Letting Up Despite Great Faults" have a number of quality songs to support such a noble sounding name - our favorite from their latest release are the dramatic "Stand Still" and the more minimalistic “Folding Under Stories Told” . The Los Angeles/Austin based electro-dream-pop band is about to release a new album entitled "Untogether" (scheduled for early October) and recently unveiled the first single "Visions" (streaming below), which nods the 80's era Cure of "In Between Days" by way of pace, chord progression and strumming, and through bass textures reminiscent of New Order's Peter Hook. Sugary sandpaper vocals share space alongside additional late-80's pop purveyors Echo & The Bunnymen, with a bit of modern-era "twee" (and fellow half-a-sentence named) Pains Of Being Pure At Heart style vocals on the bridge. - Dave Cromwell
