Straight-outta-Waterloo pop outfit Will Currie & The Country French have been relatively quiet since the release of 2011’s Awake, You Sleepers!, but it looks like that’s about to change: File Under: Music is set to release the band’s sophomore effort, They Killed Us, on June 9.
Produced by Will Currie and Sam Hilifier in (where else?) Waterloo, They Killed Us is inspired by the band’s experiences during their quiet years after the release of the critically-acclaimed Awake, and marks a return to their trademark combination of pop with symphonic elements.
With lilting pianos and strings and cinematic rises and falls, the title track, which we’re premiering below, blurs the line between chamber music and straightforward pop. In short: they killed it.
