The Dig's Midnight Flowers
is the band's second album after 2010's Electric Toys
. The new album, released on Buffalo Jump Records, is a less lively, but more thought-out follow-up. Thematically it lands somewhere between remorseful and bitter without sounding adolescent. With lyrics like "You can never break the silence in your heart" and "you close your eyes and all you see is red" Midnight Flowers
at first comes across as a little exaggerated. However, on further inspection the listener finds that this Brooklyn band composed an album that is both honest and reflective.
