Algiers sign to Matador, announce new album and stream new single

22 January 2015, 16:37 | Written by Laurence Day

"Post-worldbeat" trio Algiers, who originally hail from the US's muggy Deep South, have signed to Matador, announced a self-titled debut LP, and unveiled a fresh single.

"But She Was Not Flying" is a tormented slab of dark soul-rock; it's a Southern Gothic death rattle, riddled with the possessed howls of lead singer Franklin James Fisher, warped gospel vox and rapture-inspired keys. It's dramatic, horror-scorched and frighteningly fascinating.

Algeirs will be released by Matador later this year.

Listen to "But She Was Not Flying" below.
