he return of DATAROCK is finally upon us: the Norwegian act have announced their long-awaited third album Face the Brutality with a few teases: fans can get a glimpse of the new DATAROCK here and here, and stream the first single here. “Ruffle Shuffle” is a memorable return for the synth act – hooky, stylishly constructed and impeccably produced.
Face the Brutality will be released March 9, 2018 on YAP Records.
DATAROCK’s infectious brand of indie-dance has seen considerable international attention, including placements with Apple and Google – take one listen to the opening bassline of “Fa Fa Fa” and you’ll instantly recognize it.
Face the Brutality will be the band’s first LP since 2009 and first output since their musical (featuring 87 live musicians, as you do), The Musical, in 2015. Years in the making, Face the Brutality is an album for the bored and bitter survivors of 2017, an upbeat escape with substance.
