“…‘Omphalic’ is emotively conquering…” – Rock Sound Magazine
“A Child of grunge comes of age.” – The Herald
Algernon Doll have released the amazing and bizarrely animated video for ‘Justine’. The track is taken from their third album Omphalic, released via Struggletown Records.
Algernon Doll’s third album has already picked up a wealth of support, including features, reviews and exclusives from the likes of The Herald, Punktastic and AltSounds, and has seen them featured on the cover mount CD of Rock Sound Magazine as well as playing Radio 1’s Big Weekend. Later this year, the band plan on recording yet another album, this time with legendary producer Steve Albini.
The video premiered on AltSounds and you can now watch ‘Justine’ below.
Spilt Milk Perfume was the first single to be released from Omphalic and is available to download for free via the ABoF SoundCloud page and you can watch the video for ‘Justine’ above. The band then released Suicide, the video of which was premiered exclusively on The Skinny – with the video and the track itself capturing the sweaty, youth infused spirit of grunge, but with an Algernon Doll edge. The track itself premiered on podcart and can now be downloaded for free from the ABoF SoundCloud page.
Omphalic was mastered by Shellac‘s Bob Weston, who has production credits on a host of classic records such as Nirvana’s In-Utero, Shipping News, Missions of Burma, Chavez, June of 44, Rachel’s and LCD Soundsystem. The collaboration was a perfect fit creatively, producing an album full of raw angst complimented by catchy, energetic songwriting that tempts the listener back again and again.
