|The Voyeurs Rhubarb Rhubarb Limited Vinyl LP + Download
· ‘Rhubarb Rhubarb’ is released on LP with download code.
· The album follows their debut, ‘Clarietta’, which was released in May 2013.
· Recorded at the Flesh & Bone and The Premises studios in East London, the 10-track album was produced by Oli Bayston
· “The new album has a colder, darker feeling than the first one,” says Charlie. “One of my favourite records is Lou Reed’s ‘Berlin’, which swings between a cold starkness and a kind of brilliant pomposity. We wanted to have those two elements - really stripped-down moments of just tambourine alongside ten layers of harmonised guitar.”
· The result is an album that looks determinedly out into the world but also maintains contact with the band’s origins.
· “There’s a lot of noise around in the world today,” says Charlie. “I was thinking of the idea of making noise but not really saying anything. The idea of ‘rhubarb, rhubarb’ is unscripted background conversation in plays and on television. Today people are commenting on things all the time, commenting in new ways - Twitter and things. But a lot of it’s just more background, another kind of ‘rhubarb, rhubarb’…”
