Show Review

So young, so very volatile! That, though, is the way we like it...which makes this SXSW performance from the Domino Records Showcase by angular up and comers These New Puritans one of Baeble's brand new favorites. Intense and mood defining synths, steady percussive explosions, and the dare deviling dance of a forbidden, electric guitar; the sonic shockwave which main man Jack Barnett sets his commanding testaments to may just plow you over if you're not too careful. Watch These New Puritans spark the Austin evening with this electrifying performance. - David Pitz

Artist Bio

Hailing from the town of Southend, England, the four-piece These New Puritans play Fall- and PiL-inspired music that also takes on elements of electronica and dance. Comprised of vocalist Jack Barnett (who also plays the guitar and laptop), his twin brother and drummer George, keyboardist Sophie Sleigh-Johnson, and bassist (and man behind the sampler) Thomas Hein, the band formed in 2006, when all the members were still in their teens. Their edgy aesthetic and particular live show (Jack, for example, usually performed wearing a shirt fully buttoned to his neck), soon brought the group attention from the British press, enough that soon-to-be-former Christian Dior designer Hedi Slimane asked Barnett to compose something for his fall 2007 collection for Dior Homme, a piece, "Navigate, Navigate," which was then debuted in Paris in February at the fashion show. In October of that same year, These New Puritans issued an EP, Now Pluvial, on Angular Records. Their first U.S. release. Navigate, Navigate, came out in America in February 2008, a 12" that acted as a primer for their debut full-length, Beat Pyramid, which emerged the following month. - allmusic.com
