Brilliant! Tragic! is the forthcoming fourth record from indie rockers Art Brut. Like its predecessor, Art Brut Vs Satan, it is produced by Pixies divinity Frank Black aka Black Francis, and first official single “Lost Weekend” has just hit the web.
Unlike earlier works, frontman Eddie Argos sounds quieter and way more relaxed than his usual loud talking progressive punk stylings. Everything else is straight up Art Brut; a bit of a cheesy love song with lyrics like “I'm sorry if I embarrassed you by saying something stupid like I love you,” that sounds awesome along the compelling guitar solos and rampant bass riffs.
Brilliant! Tragic! comes out May 23rd via Cooking Vinyl.
