Dark Island is the eighth release from Birmingham's finest purveyors of dark electronic indie-pop, PRAM. Pram's strange and twisted world takes in the odd and solitary lives of a windswept seaside town in winter. From the angular edges of the Achivist to the melancholy longing of the Pawnbroker, the characters which populate Dark Island harbour peculiar and frightening secrets. The album is a 10 track exotica-delight that will enchant you; all with a recognisable sound, but the big difference this time is space - lots of space permeating the record with atmospheric indulgence. Slinky guitars, glorious brass, sparse bass heavy beats, floating melodies, all with a prevailing pop air. It's wonderful stuff!
