Funeral Advantage Premieres New Video on BrooklynVegan; Debut Album, Body Is Dead, Out August 25 via The Native Sound
The good people at BrooklynVegan just premiered the music video for “Sisters”, a song off of Funeral Advantage’s upcoming debut album, Body Is Dead, out August 25 on The Native Sound (digital and on limited edition 12″ vinyl).
On the video, BrooklynVegan says:
“You may have heard Boston’s Funeral Advantage from their recent split with Former Ghosts, or if you live near their hometown, maybe you’ve seen them with Alvvays or Whirr. Their sound fits pretty well with both of those bands. It’s shoegaze drowned in a sea of reverb like the latter, but there’s sweet pop melodies under all that haze that are more in line with the former.”
After two years, and multiple EPs and split releases,Funeral Advantage is finally here with a debut full-length album. Titled after the 10-minute long closing track, Body Is Dead serves as an excellent introduction to indie/ dream-pop of Tyler Kershaw, and an even better continuation of his past work. Following on the heels of his most popular release, in the split 7″ with Former Ghosts, Body Is Dead incorporates many of the electronic and indie rock elements of that release, but infuses a deeper semblance of pop. This collection of 10 new songs is without a doubt the catchiest and dreamiest thus far.
Pre-order Body Is Dead on any of the following formats:
– Limited Edition 12″LP (Dirt Maroon and Black variants)
– Tape (Domestic, and Imported Japanese Pressing)
– Bundles (including every single Funeral Advantage release thus far)
