Description

Esteemed British electronic outfit Blancmange return with ‘Private View’. Originally from the UK’s post punk DIY scene, Blancmange found success in 1982, long player ‘Happy Families’ selling Gold in the UK, and its 3 singles becoming international hits. They went on to have 7 Top 40 hits and 70 weeks in the UK album charts.
40 years and 16 albums later, Blancmange have re-signed to London Records with the captivating and inspired ‘Private View’, melding futuristic electronics, Neil Arthur’s unmistakable vocal hooks, and songs spanning buoyant and joyful to dark and brooding. Private View is distinctly Blancmange while also expanding into new sonic terrain.
Long-standing admirers include Moby, John Grant and Honey Dijon, who states that “British synth pop was hugely influential in the burgeoning house music scene and Blancmange was a big part of that.”
On Private View Neil returns with key collaborator Benge (Wrangler, John Foxx, John Grant), and David Rhodes (Kate Bush, Peter Gabriel, Scott Walker) also returns as the guitarist, having pre-viously performed with the band as early as 1982’s Happy Families (as well as several other Blancmange albums).
