These New Puritans - Into The Fire
Published: 2:01 pm, November 09, 2018Words: Martyn Young.

These New Puritans have gone back to the future on their return track ‘Into The Fire’. Embracing their most primitive and primal urges, the Barnett brothers are sounding a lot different than when we last heard them on 2013’s ‘Field Of Reeds’. Where that record was ornately beautifully and filled with classical leanings, this is a proper banger. 

Filled with brooding menace and propelled along on a rumbling drum backbeat, it manages to be both tender and powerfully disturbing at the same time. Jack Barnett indulges in all his shamanistic glory as he implores you to step into the unknown. 

Bringing in David Tibet of Current 93, an 80s UK band who mined the same idiosyncratic path as These New Puritans, the duo have yet again forged a new path, midway between the propulsive thrills of their 2008 debut 'Beat Pyramid' and the sort of compelling experimentalism that they’re known for. 

There have never been any boundaries for These New Puritans, and this return shows you should always expect the unexpected.
