Datarock return with groovy little number, Laugh In The Face Of Darkness

Datarock return with groovy little number, Laugh In The Face Of Darkness

Their new album Face The Brutality is out March 9.

Towards the end of last year Datarock released Ruffle Shuffle, the first tastte of their upcoming third LP - Face The Brutality - and as march toward that record's March 9 release, they've unveiled second single Laugh In The Darkness. It's an ominous little indie-dance groover, one that hints at the Datarock of yesteryear having grown up a little - a sentiment echoed by the band's singer Fredrik Saroea: "Laugh In The Face of Darkness was actually the last song we produced for the album - and I guess it kinda sums up how this album was made. You see, just like back in the days when we "wrote" songs like Computer Camp Love and Fa Fa Fa, this album wasnt made for a label or a management - but just for ourselves and our friends - and this entire song just came out of the blue at a boys-with-beer session in our own studio, without any "work" or effort or clever ideas on what to write or input from advisors or co-producers or whatever music-business in mind whatsoever; we even recorded opening a can and pouring beer in a glass as sound effects if you listen closely."

Until March 9, you can take a drink of this frosty new single below, and keep your ears on more Datarock moving forward - we get the feeling they miss Australia and are very much keen to get back amongst it, something we are very damn keen on:
