Today's 3-song exclusive stream comes from Belgium's ADOLINA off of their upcoming 'Drei Kanter' LP. These three songs, as well as the other eight (that's a total of 11, in case your math is atrocious) sound like nothing other than ADOLINA. Sure, there are brief resemblances to bands like The Rabbit Theory, Town Portals, Ahleuchatistas, 12XU, Baton Rouge, Q And Not U, Life In Vacuum, North Of America, Secret Smoker, Animal Faces, These Arms Are Snakes and later-era Ultra Dolphins. The bouncy yet disjointed and rhythmic instrumental section really carries each song, that generally include some clean vocals which accentuate the music but certainly aren't the focal point.
The album is their third full length and the first written with their new drummer, Antoine, who joined back in 2013. According to the band, the themes of most of the songs are about the "deliquescence of our societies, our political system, the so-called democracy" etc.
The record is currently at the plant so I would expect a late spring/early summer release, but don't quote me! Be sure to check out the interview I did with ADOLINA following the release of their split with The Rabbit Theory right here as well as a review of their discography (as of mid-2014) here. You can buy the aforementioned split 12" digitally on the ZBR bandcamp page here or physically from the ZBR store here, although I only have 4 or 5 copies left.
