Lots of bands claim to be different, but few actually are. Engineers, though, are definitely one of the few.
They’re a group who ardently believe in the restless, symphonic power of music. They’re driven forward by the same impulse that compelled Dennis Wilson to write Pacific Ocean Blue or Talk Talk to forge Spirit Of Eden. When so much around them is prosaic and mundane, Engineers want to create music of immense depth and scope that combines the experimental with the emotional. Inspired by everything from Brian Eno and The Cocteau Twins through to Todd Rundgren and Spiritualized, they’re interested in the music they make and little else.
Three Fact Fader, the follow up to their critically acclaimed self-titled debut, will be released on Kscope on 6th July 2009.
The debut was described as ‘The most out-and-out gorgeous collection of songs you’ve heard in a long time’ by The Times (★★★★) and a
‘stunning debut from leading lights of nu-gaze… Engineers are never anything less than beautiful’ by the NME (9/10)
and Three Fact Fader follows this by creating an another album of panoramic beauty.
