American Twilight, the first album from the Crime and the City Solution in over 20 years will see a March 26th release through Mute Records. To celebrate the occasion and build up a bit of buzz for the new album, the band released the official video for album title track, “American Twilight."
Shot in and around Detroit, MI, the video captures the startlingly eerie and strangely beautiful dilapidation and decay of one of the country’s great cities. From the video, it looks as though Detroit could have been London during the Nazi Blitzkrieg.
Sonically, the song has an ominous, end of the world-like buzz as frontman Simon Bonney croons with a decadently seductive yet darkly sardonic vocal style.
