Salt Lake City’s post punk/garage rock three-piece Sculpture Club is gearing up to release their upcoming album, A Place To Stand, on vinyl through Cercle Social Records. Although the album isn’t out until December, we’ve got the exclusive stream to the 9-track beauty in its entirety right here.
Heavy guitar, and a catchy drum beat. The sound is unique – something you don’t necessarily expect from a band out of SLC – a culmination of influences the likes of Cure, Grave Babies, Les Savy Fav, and many more. A Place To Stand hits hard with the title track from the beginning and just does not quit. Slightly reminiscent of a darker version of The Killers, we are very on board with the way their songs just tend to roll into each other.
This album is wildly theatrical, from the first line of “A Place To Stand” through “Black Coffee”, and a flurry of sound – and slight off-pitch emotion – in “My Favorite”, and all the way through the last notes of ninth track “Three Hours”. It’s a party album, but a dark party album. Play it in the background of your next mid-sized get together, and get ready to feel the bass.
A Place to Stand is available for preorder via Cercle Social Records now.
