Blissed out 80's synth inspired album that is refreshing and spectacular. Brooklyn-based synth auteurs Nation of Language entered 2020 as one of the most heralded new acts of recent memory, having already earned high-praise from the likes of NME, Fader, Pitchfork, Stereogum and countless others for their ability to blend the upbeat with a healthy dose of sardonic melancholy on their early singles. Inspired by the early new-wave and punk movements, the band has quickly earned a reputation for delivering frenzied nights of unconventional bliss to rapt audiences, and established themselves as bright young stars emerging from a crowded NYC landscape. After much eager anticipation, their gloom pop debut album Introduction, Presence is finally released. For fans of OMD, The National, New Order and Tears for Fears.
