Here’s More Dark Wave From The Black Ships

blackIt’s getting to that point of the year when things are slim pickings in the Interwebs…people are working on wrapping things up with all their lists, but music’s still coming out. I love this bouncy bit of dark pop coming from the Black Ships, who I wrote about earlier in this year. There’s a nice wash of keyboards on this tune, giving it a little bit of club shimmer. Those of you looking for tunes of the darker pop ilk will definitely be appreciative of Dead Empires, the band’s new album coming out later this week.

Dark Wave Tune from The Black Ships

deadempiresI love everything about this track, and I loved it from the moment I pressed play. It opens with a darkly tinged guitar line, setting the mood for the listener before the drums enter with a synth wash to coat the track in that beautifully warm feel many of us adore. If you’re one of those music fans still holding on to the pop of the 80s, then you’re going to find yourself playing and replaying this track from The Black Ships, who’ve just announced a new LP. This new effort is titled Dead Empires and is slated for a December 4th release date.
