Asserting a fierce electronic element to their acclaimed pop formula, UK industrial-pop trio Fassine will release new album FORGE on March 27 via Trapped Animal Records & Cargo Records. Previously released lead album track “Bloom” is the band’s response to the obsession of perceived beauty in perfection. Meanwhile, the introspective new album single/video “Magpie” examines the tempting allure of love and acceptance. “A Magpie-type lover and all that comes with it, luring us in to the hope of a beautiful relationship, explains frontwoman Sarah Palmer. “It’s as close as we could get to writing a pop song on this album!”
A gripping tribute to the unassuming heroes on the fringes of society, the new collection is bolder than ever, elevating the London trio’s distinctive take on electronic music with heavier, more aggressive instrumentation. The band has garnered acclaim from The Guardian, The Independent, Clash and more with comparisons spanning Trent Reznor to Berlin-era Bowie.
Since their last release, Fassine’s XTC cover of “That Wave” appeared on the Sky Arts documentary on the seminal band, This Is Pop. Their track “Whatever It Takes To Help You Sleep” played as the backdrop to Netflix’s first feature film “Velvet Buzzsaw”, and ”Leaves” was featured on Oprah Winfrey’s Queen Sugar. FORGE means ‘to create something strong and enduring’. With this new album, Fassine has embodied the grit and grime of their personal heroes and wield an industrial and hard-hitting piece of craftsmanship.
