Algiers are releasing ‘Miles and Miles Of Rosary Beads’, their second single from debut album You’re The Captain, on 9th June 2014. Released digitally, the single is backed with the brand new track ‘Dirty Monsters’. The accompanying video can be seen above.
Not knowing any bass players who would fit, they settled on being a two-piece and with a common ground in their fondness for indie-rock bands such as Death Cab for Cutie, American Football, The Weakerthans and The Walkmen, they set about writing songs, focusing on standard pop-song formulas; relying more on melody and simpler structures than their previous bands. The result is a sound that’s both heady and visceral.
Algiers are also embarking on a short but sturdy Scottish tour. Go see them…
