These New Puritans // Into the Fire 7" (Infectious)


Bowled over by the first new TNP track in 5 years. Absolutely adored Field of Reeds (as with every album they’ve put out…even Beat Pyramid at the time), but pleased it sounds like they’re returning to some of the big and energetic sounds they had on Hidden.

Hopefully not alone in getting legitimately excited about this, I’ve spun it a fair few times already tonight, which doesn’t happen that much.


I’m not immediately onboard but considering how Field of Reeds grew and grew with each listen, and the more it felt lived-in, i’m still excited to see how this fits into a larger piece.

The drum patterns really put me in mind of The Beautiful People. Not as unwelcome an association as I would have thought, mind.
