iTunes Editors’ Notes

"The title of These New Puritans’ debut album, Beat Pyramid, really should have been saved for their second — Hidden, a towering testament to the power of diamond-edged drums, sinister synths, and 13-piece orchestras. You heard that last part right: 13-piece orchestras. Rather than rely on the proven Fall/Gang of Four formula of their last album, frontman Jack Barnett studied music notation and helped his merry band of miscreants dive right into a post-everything opus that has as much to do with neo-classical music as it does with skeletal strains of dubstep, electro and apocalyptic rock. All of which seem to make perfect sense, from the unsheathed swords and slammed doors of “Attack Music” to the regal horns and heaven-sent choruses of “We Want War.” The percussion is absolutely punishing throughout, too. In fact, you might run for cover well before the last track (""5"") brings the curtain down on us all. "

Customer Reviews

Utter brilliance

Dark, daring and absolutely inventive. This is a very dark album but packed with amazing percussion. Imagine mixing 1 part Radiohead with 2 parts Liars and there you have it.

WHOA!!!

On a day with nothing to do, just close your eyes and listen to this album. WHOA! Don`t be surprised if you find yourself somewhere else, because it`ll happen. This whole album flows beautifully with some major beats thrown in, in the most wonderful way. Take the trip with These New Puritans, I`m glad I did.

Haha, excellent!

TNP delivers! Three Thousand and We Want War are especially dark and creepy, but in a good way. Driving beats and orchestral aspects make this album pretty awesome.
