Published May 08, 2013It's been just more than half a year since Swedish producer Hannes Norrvide delivered Growing Seeds, his sophomore set as Lust for Youth, but a follow-up is already on the way. Titled Perfect View, Norrvide's third full-length arrives June 11 through Sacred Bones.
A press release notes that while Growing Seeds was crafted after the disintegration of a destructive personal relationship, Perfect View was "written from a mind obsessed with thoughts of morality." The song cycle is said to be largely instrumental, focusing more on beats and samples than Growing Seeds, but the album apparently touches upon the dark fable of King Herod ordering the murder of his second wife.
Despite this, the album is described as being warmer and more inviting than Lust for Youth's previous LPs. You can check out driving electro-pop cut "Breaking Silence" down below to make that call for yourself.
Lust for Youth also have a handful of live dates booked in the U.S. this summer, which you can see beneath the tracklisting.
