The Long Blondes, the Sheffield indie-pop quintet that boasts two boyfriend-girlfriend pairs in the group, has just announced the release of their sophomore album, Couples. Judging by the title, the follow-up to their liberating debut, Someone To Drive You Home—with the excellent not-quite-riot-girl vocals of frontlady Kate Jackson—will no doubt the tracks will be full of, uh, band experience. To give the album some added couples' therapy-bite, The Blondes have asked friend and celeb-DJ, Erol Alkan, to produce.
The busy Blondes have set aside some time to test out the new tracks on the road. The band will be taking a quick tour of England and Scotland this spring.
