St. Etienne get back to the dance floor
A full seven years after 2005's mellow Tales From Turnpike House, London-based indie-dance trio St. Etienne have previewed their latest single, "Tonight," due out March 5. Interestingly, the song is a straightforward dance-pop tune that harks back to the days of Tiger Bay and So Tough rather than the more mature, often reflective period that began with 1998's Good Humor.
Singer Sarah Cracknell sounds as primly alluring as ever while singing about the anticipation before seeing a new favorite band's club gig. Meanwhile, cohorts Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs deliver the mix of indie pop smarts and engaging dance beats that's been the trio's trademark ever since their classic 1991 debut Foxbase: Alpha.
Title and release date of the album remain unknown.
