TEENAGE FANCLUB - ENDLESS ARCADE -LTD TRANSLUCENT GREEN VINYL
Teenage Fanclub have announced news of their 10th studio album, Endless Arcade. Even if we weren't living through extraordinarily troubling times, there is nothing quite like a Teenage Fanclub album to assuage the mind, body and soul, and to reaffirm that all is not lost in this world.
Endless Arcade follows the band's ninth album Here, released in 2016 to universal acclaim and notably their first top 10 album since 1997; a mark of how much they're treasured. The new record is quintessential TFC: melodies are equal parts heart-warming and heart-aching; guitars chime and distort; keyboard lines mesh and spiral; harmony-coated choruses burst out like sun on a stormy day.
In the 1990s, the band crafted a magnetically heavy yet harmony-rich sound on classic albums such as Bandwagonesque and Grand Prix. This century, albums such as Shadows and Here have documented a more relaxed, less 'teenage' Fanclub, reflecting the band's stage in life and state of mind, which Endless Arcade slots perfectly alongside. The album walks a beautifully poised line between melancholic and uplifting, infused with simple truths. The importance of home, community and hope is entwined with more bittersweet, sometimes darker thoughts - insecurity, anxiety, loss.
