Pale Saints - The Comforts Of Madness ▼

So lets kick things off. If my music player were to cock-up, keep looping the Pale Saints over and over, I wouldn't smash it to pieces - not right away, anyway. Origninaly a three-piece ethereal pop band, Leeds, England. I've really been into "The Comforts of Madness" lately. Its maddening -excuse the pun- that it was such a late find. Their sound merges Ian Master's Choirboy vocals with swooping shoegaze-induced guitars, with dramaticly pessimistic lyrics. Kinda like Galaxie 500, if they had more balls and got a little wired.
Clearly influenced by The Jesus & Mary Chain, MBV and the like, though they seem more towards pop than their predecessors, which make them all the more appealing. They signed on recording label giants 4AD -Dead Can Dance, Cocteau Twins, Lush- right after thier very first show, which is quite a feat.
Fucking A, I say.
