Published Jul 30, 2012Earlier this year, Inlet Sound released a video for their song "Mademoiselle" and promised that their debut full-length would soon follow. True to their word, the Ontario folk pop act have now officially announced The Romantics, which will drop on October 16.
According to a press release, the collection is a "narrative of sorts" that addresses "the anxiety of growing old, and painted with both melancholy and hopefulness." It was produced by Laurence Currie (Sloan, Wintersleep, Holy Fuck, Hey Rosetta!), with sessions taking place in cabins and churches over a three-month period in the spring.
To get a taste of what's promised to be album about the "tumultuous experiences of youth and maturation," check out the single "Magnetic North" at the bottom of the page.
