The 12-track effort serves as the synthpop outfit’s third album to date following 2013’s acclaimed Shulamith. It was recorded at Sonic Ranch Studios in El Paso, Texas.
An official statement notes that United Crushers explores themes that are “heavily political and deeply personal with thick references to social injustice, self-doubt and isolation, the rapidly increasing urban decline in gentrification, overcoming music industry machinations, and finding true and honest love in the wake of it all.”
In an interview with DIY last month, singer Channy Leaneagh described her vision for the album:
“I saw this record as my last chance. I’m not saying it actually is, but that’s where my head was at I wanted it to have a “final paper” feel. I wanted it to be our best work, because who knows what happens next. I wanted to lay myself bare vocally, process vocals in different ways and play around because why not, write lyrics about something besides myself and re-work everything over and over until it was exactly as I wanted.”
