Today The Church of Budgerigars have announced the release date for the forthcoming third LP, Sciences Nouvelles, with the premiere of Duchess Says’ second single I Repeat Myself on Noisey. The album, a follow up to their well-received effort, In a Fung Day T!, is set to be released on Bonsound (Canada) and Slovenly Recordings (rest of the world) on October 14th.
I Repeat Myself is available now on Bandcamp, Soundcloud and all other digital platforms. You can pre-order Sciences Nouvelles now via iTunes and Bandcamp (Vinyl/CD/digital).
Recorded in their newly built Montreal studio, the track is an example of the LP's tightly-wound, GOTH-influenced synth punk. Vocalist Annie-Claude Deschênes delivers a ferocious performance over a frenetic analog synth arrangement that's indebted to the aesthetics of Devo’s primordial new-wave, DAF’s esoteric electronics, and the anarchic no-wave of Teenage Jesus & The Jerks. According to Deschênes, the song was an attempt to address a feeling of personal stagnation and a sense that repetition is an unavoidable and inevitable feature in life.
Duchess Says will officially launch their album on October 20th at La Tulipe. Tickets are on sale now.
