Positive reception to latest Deacon Blue album
THE LATEST album, 'A New House', by Scotland's mainstream hitmakers Deacon Blue is already receiving enthusiastic reviews. The Scotsman newspaper wrote about its "symphonic sweep which puts the listener in mind of Elbow and the project's buoyant folk rock." The reviewer also commented, "From its quietly suggestive title on, it feels hard to divorce his band's new album (their third in 13 years, following 2012's 'The Hipsters') from the matter of the vote which will take place less than a fortnight after its release next week. Yet it might also be entirely unrelated. Almost every track on here could be interpreted both as a straightforward love song and as a metaphorical comment upon the nature of Scotland as a nation and its relationship with its closest neighbours."
Deacon Blue will kick off A New House Tour on 30th November in Aberdeen and will subsequently play concerts in Glasgow, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Sheffield, Cardiff, Harrogate, Nottingham, London, Birmingham, Manchester and Edinburgh, concluding in Liverpool on 21st December.The opinions expressed in this article are not necessarily those held by Cross Rhythms.
