Middle Boop Single of the week - Autolux - Supertoys (ATP)
It's been a long time coming but the new Autolux album is so very nearly here. After having a bit of a torrid time over the last few years with record deals going sour and promises not being kept, they were finally picked up by the wonderful ATP Recordings and haven't looked back since.
Supertoys is one of the stand out tracks from an album that could seriously catapult Autolux back into the hearts and minds of many a music lover after being away for what seems like a lifetime. The trio belt out a curiously catchy chorus built over the hauntingly layered guitars and vocal harmonies that the band are so well known for. Their sound is a refinement on Future Perfect with more of an emphasis on pop sensibility which works so well for these guys.
Autolux have supported everyone from PJ Harvey to Nine Inch Nails and Thom Yorke, you don't get these sort of high end support slots for nothing, this three piece really have something that not many other people do and hopefully with the release of they will get the response that merits such a fine record.
Supertoys is out today via ATP Recordings
