Canadian gothic folk trio Timber Timbre’s new album, Sincerely, Future Pollution, was written during the political turmoil of 2016 and the influence of those events is all over the album. Frontman Taylor Kirk has said “I hate to admit that normally I express more sensitivity than concern politically, but I think the tone and result on the record is utter chaos and confusion.”
Lead single “Sewer Blues” shows off the album’s dizzying thrust. The track is dark and skulking, with streaking synths strike throughout it but it only hints at the scope of the rest of the album. It’s a record more electronic than anything they’ve ever produced before, a newfangled sound with cinematic tints and dark, steely cool swagger. You can already tell it will sound incredible live.
