Young Statues release new album Flatlands are your friend
Four years after that chance journey to Athens changed everything, Young Statues have returned to Chase Park Transduction Studio to record their sophomore full-length, The Flatlands Are Your Friend. (out tomorrow)
Allusions to the dark side of American life in modern times permeate the record's core until its last breath. Album opener "Natives" spirals out of sync with gravity through spindling fingerpicks and a wash of atmospheric synthesizers mimicking the path toward self-destruction filled with hopeless figures and the weight of the world sinking you deeper into the void.
