DOWNLOAD: Cruel Black Dove - Offer
Like Placebo if they’d lost the whole androgyny shtick and linked up with Shirley Manson, Cruel Black Dove’s “Offer” is a bit of post-industrial pop music for people who really like to wear black, music that's dark but not morose and still danceable. The RCRD LBL band will board a plane next week for Rejkjavik, Iceland, where they’re due to play their first shows outside the States at the Iceland Airwaves festival with bands like White Denim and Crystal Castles. After that their next show is an unofficial CMJ party at Vanishing Point in Brooklyn on the 24th. Full info for both is over at their MySpace. We’ll be premiering the video for “Offer” sometime in the next week or so, so make sure to check back if you’re digging what you hear.
Sounds like: Placebo, Nine Inch Nails, Garbage
