The Broken Needles

The Broken Needles

THE BROKEN NEEDLES are set to release their second studio album HOLY COAST. The follow-up to 2012’s TERRA NULLIUS (hailed by Rolling Stone as, “a wet-season postcard from Psychoville, N.Q.”), HOLY COAST sees the band’s ferocious twin-guitar attack gracefully supplanted by billowing synth textures, meandering pedal steel lines and baroque string arrangements. The result is a lucid dreamscape that traverses the astral plane from a salt-kissed coastal dawn to the glowing pink sunsets of the western desert across the album’s eight songs. Incorporating elements of shoegaze, dreampop, lounge, soul and country; the album is a diverse offering of varied song forms and disparate influences – cohesive yet adrift somewhere in between the polar aural dimensions of The Birthday Party, Slowdive and Van Morrison. HOLY COAST will be released internationally on vinyl, CD and digital formats on June 20th 2014.

    The Great Divide
    By The Broken Needles
    THE GREAT DIVIDE is a reverb-drenched, downtrodden neo-ballad built on a stoic drum machine loop battling with cascading live percussion -- all against a backdrop of guitar feedback and chamber string drones.

    Bound to Fade
    By The Broken Needles
    The lead single off THE BROKEN NEEDLES’ 2014 record HOLY COAST, the world-weary duet BOUND TO FADE details a transiently doomed love affair afflicted by the modern condition. Featuring lush string arrangements, muted trumpet calls and reverb-drenched guitars, the song is the eye of the storm encircling HOLY COAST.
