ARC027: These New Puritans - Numbers / Colours
A double A-sided picture disc in which we find These New Puritans are a necessary cure.
Too savvy for shell suits and too self-aware for the primal wailing of Gang Gang Dance, they are as all young, British bands should be: lean, smart, beat-clever.

As their name suggests, These New Puritans are a group on a very precise mission. Hailing from around Southend-On-Sea, and consisting of Barnett, his twin brother George, Thomas Hein and Sophie Sleigh-Johnson, they have established their reputation through a series of high profile live appearances alongside the likes of The Kills and Klaxons. They first came to prominence with their 2008 debut album, Beat Pyramid. Urgent, pared down, eyes on stalks, sharp as a stick, it was hailed by the NME as demonstrating a “span of ideas and singularity of vision that simply shouldn't happen to 20 year olds. They've created their own imperfect world.”
