Album Review: The Strange Death Of Liberal England - Drown Your Heart Again

With such a grand name, its no surprise The Strange Death Of Liberal England have delivered an album that is filled with much grandeur; sweeping strings, bursting brass sections and more. From start to finish 'Drown Your Heart Again' leaves you feeling captivated and to an extent, overwhelmed.

Opening with 'Flickering Light', the Portsmouth group quickly settle you in with their adventurous brand of post-rock/indie, that is thoughtfully structured as they instantly draw you in. Whereas 'Flagships' is subtly heavy with a calmly delivered vocals and twinkling xylophone notes, whilst recent single 'Rising Sea' keeps the bands consistency and the bands comparisons to Arcade Fire are definitely evident here, as the bands mix of rock guitars, male-female vocals and orchestral instruments make up the bulk of the track.
