HANGING FREUD - Unveiled A New Album

The UK based darkwave/post-punk duo Hanging Freud has just unveiled their sixth full-length album Persona Normal. The band states: "We were living between the UK and Brazil, going back and forth. These were two societies going through extreme change. The whole world was changing in a way that felt scary."
Some themes of Persona Normal deal with detachment, dissociation, what it means to be human, political issues and strong, irrational cults. These are approached in tracks like "I Beg You" and "We Don't Want To Sleep". Persona Normal is also a record about transformation, and growth, accepting losses and coming to terms with the loss of innocence, and is now available in physical and digital formats on Hanging Freud's label, Tiny Box. Persona Normal was written produced and recorded by the duo with mastering duties from James Plotkin (Khanate). Hanging Freud's new record Persona Normal sees a progressive change with more urgency and directness in sound and while maintaining a synth/drum machine approach. The album moves the duo into new post-punk, krautrock and art-rock direction rather than the more emotive, goth-inspired leanings of their previous record Nowhere.
Hanging Freud is a Glasgow based production duo of Paula Borges and Jonathan Skinner. As a duo, they combine their somewhat nomadic past with multicultural backgrounds of coming from Sao Paulo (Brazil) and London (UK), into a body of work that is more often than not described as uncompromising and genre-defying. Throughout their career, Hanging Freud has played around with all sorts of sounds with structures ranging from straightforward melodic verse chorus verse to claustrophobic, dense, ambient workouts, cold minimalism and repetition. Hanging Freud themes approach dark multilayered subjects. It's contradictory, emotional and aims to combine sound and lyric as one. The video for "Antidote/Immune" awaits you below. Link
