For me, Azar Swan, are one of the best bands on earth at this moment in time. Their debut album, which came out last year, “Dance Before The War” is an absolute classic. One of the best albums I’ve heard in years.
Also within the lead vocalist, Zohra Atash, they have one of the most interesting, intelligent and unique musicians fronting the band. Check out the brilliant Top 15 she did for Generation Bass last year!.
Via our good friends and one of our favourite sites, The Quietus, you can now hear the second track, “We Hunger” from their forthcoming second album “And Blow Us A Kiss” due out next Monday 27th October 2014 on the Zoo Music label.
“We Hunger” continues the Gothy Dream Pop atmospherics of much of their debut album and pays huge inspiration to the 80’s Electro-Goth scene with a dash of Depeche Mode “Black Celebration” era thrown in for good measure. I wasn’t overly keen on the first track from the new album, “For Last & Forever” (which you can also hear below) but this second one really grabs me like the debut album did and I’m in love again.
