ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In the tradition of a city known as the birthplace of industrial, A New January don't try to follow the trends, sticking to what they like, sounds from the 80's and 90's that are updated with today's technology. At a time when 80's music is more influential than ever, Cold and Naked goes beyond the simple exercise of nostalgia, the band's longtime distinctive approach having resulted in the creation of their own signature sound.

Cold and Naked contains popish coldwave tracks with influences from goth, synth-pop and drum 'n bass. A New January is in the vein of such acts as Crocodile Shop or Razed in Black. Sonically, the album is recording bliss, tons of juicy complex drum patterns and crisp polished sounds. I especially loved the moodiness of the instrumental "Jaded," the emotionality of "Drown," and even the new wave drum 'n bass workover of The Cure's "Just Like Heaven." If you like your synth-pop with a touch of electronica and processed guitars, A New January is for you.

Forging its catchy melodies and angst-driven lyrics in rich textures bathed in industrial, synthpop and new wave, on Cold and Naked, Chicago-based A New January have created a sophisticated and solid piece.

In the tradition of a city known as the birthplace of industrial, A New January don't try to follow the trends, sticking to what they like, sounds from the 80's and 90's that are updated with today's technology. At a time when 80's music is more influential than ever, Cold and Naked goes beyond the simple exercise of nostalgia, the band's longtime distinctive approach having resulted in the creation of their own signature sound.

Complex drum patterns, light guitars, cold wave keyboards and neo-romantic harmonies blend to create a very fluid and seductive music. The opening tracks, the infectious "Take it From Me" and "Worlds Are Breaking Down", perfectly represent the band, sophisticated and melodious, taking over where the precedent EP After Clothes had left us. Intertwined between the two musical genres, Cold and Naked slightly balances between industrial--Shape Your Tongue", "Pushing" and "Tooms"--and smooth electro-pop--the moody "Uncreate" and "Drown"--melodies always remaining at the core. Techno, another musical current associated with the image of the windy city, hasn't been forgotten with instrumentals such as "Transparent".
