North Atlantic Oscillation have released a brand new track online, taken from their new album ‘Fog Electric’ which is set for release on April 30 through Kscope.
‘Savage With Barometer’ is the first track from ‘Fog Electric’ to make it’s way on to the web. You can listen to the track here.
‘Fog Electric’ was recorded and co-produced by Tony Doogan (Super Furry Animals, Mogwai, Teenage Fanclub, Belle & Sebastian) and is the follow-up to ‘Grappling Hooks’, NAO‘s highly-acclaimed debut, which was released in 2010.
The title, ‘Fog Electric’, taken from the lyric of album track ‘Mirador’, introduces a stormy theme that runs throughout the record’s sounds. “It’s an album about doubt and loss, but there’s a counterbalancing sense of resignation and even optimism too.” explains singer Sam Healy. “One of the main themes is that of searching for meaning in a scientific, post-religious world. Science is absolutely a force for good, but after it showed us that the physical world is all there is, and that far from stripping experiences of their mystery this revelation actually makes them more mysterious, it sort of left us to our own devices in terms of producing the unscripted, improvised drama that is life-minus-god.”
