Black Country, New Road | Ants From Up There
Gatefold black double vinyl
One of this year’s breakout success stories from the UK’s current thriving independent music scene, critically acclaimed seven-piece Black Country, New Road present here their highly anticipated second album ‘Ants From Up There’ via Ninja Tune.
Debut album ‘For the first time’ was shortlisted for the 2021 Hyundai Mercury Prize. The band performed ‘Track X’ live on BBC 4.
‘Ants From Up There’ was written in lockdown in the early part of 2021 when the band were unable to go on tour as planned to support their album release. The result is a stunning collection of songs and a move in direction to a more crossover, alternative sound beyond the experimental and ‘post-punk’ nature of their debut.
New album expands on their unique concoction to create a singular sonic middle ground that traverses classical minimalism, indie-folk, pop, alt rock and a distinct tone that is already unique to the band.
