Sometimes people spend more time telling you that you can’t find !!! on Google, or that their band name is nigh-unpronounceable, to get around to telling you how brilliant they are. Their new single 'The Most Certain Sure' (an anthem, as lead singer Nic Offer puts it, 'about being alone') drops on 16th August, quickly followed by their album Strange Weather, Isn’t It? on 23rd August, with a European tour soon to follow.
Following a shakeup in the band’s roster, !!! went into the studio with Eric Broucek, formerly of DFA Records, and churned out Strange Weather, Isn’t It? while in Berlin. We’ve been blasting a copy of the album in our office, by the way, and it’s a barnburner from end to end, sounding like something Prince might come up with if he’d spent more time listening to Kraftwerk.
Here are their tour dates. as well as links where you can pick up tickets. But fist, here’s the psychedelic, hypnotizing video for current single 'AM/FM.'
