“This album is like its own quantum universe,” says Silversun Pickups singer/guitarist Brian Aubert. “It’s kind of unstable.” Silversun Pickups’ first new album in more than three years, BETTER NATURE sees the Silverlake, CA-based band partnering once again with producer Jacknife Lee (U2, Two Door Cinema Club, Crystal Castles), with whom they so successfully collaborated on 2012’s visionary NECK OF THE WOODS. Songs like “Friendly Fires” and “Cradle (Better Nature)” were created and crafted in Lee’s Topanga studio, the band building out organically from Aubert’s spare songwriting demos.
From the hypnotic pulsing heartbeat that begins Falling Bough Wisdom Teeth to moments of seeming, searing chaos amid the hypnotic, anchoring grooves, Kiev's debut album bestows 60 minutes and 13 songs of aural fascination. The quintet forges a seamless balance of music for both the mind and soul, a heady miasma of songs, sounds and emotions that's at once approachable and transportive.
