“A Strange Education” by The Cinematics

September 10, 2007

What do you get when you merge Joy Division with The Killers? Probably The Cinematics, a Scottish quartet from Glasgow.  A Strange Education is a follow up to the single “Break,” which is a song that will remind one of the dark wave 80’s with a danceable beat.  In fact, I felt the whole album was an updated take on new wave rock. Lead singer Scott Rinning’s melancholoy lyrics and voice combined with the bands melodic pop rock beats will make any hipster want to shake some booty!

*The CD also contains 2 videos for the songs “Break” and “Keeping Forgetting,” as well as 2 live video performances. Not bad for $11.99. Below is a Youtube video of “Break.”

    Thanks for sharing Jolene! I always know who to ask if I’m looking for something to listen to.
