There is beauty in darkness, and This New Heaven by Fine Place is a great example of that.
It is a new project of Frankie Rose (Vivian Girls, Crystal Stilts, Dum Dum Girls) and Matthew Hord (Running, Pop. 1280, Brandy), and together they created a fantastic LP, on which they have recreated the atmosphere of the New York during pandemic after all the wealthy residents left the city.
They succeeded in their task and all the songs here are fantastic and moody pieces, carefully framed with cold, icy synthesizers, tight post-punk arrangements and delicate, distinctive vocals. Listening to This New Heaven gets you somewhere totally outside of this world and with every listen it immerses you more and more.
