England’s These New Puritans, continue to experiment with new sounds on their newest venture, Hidden. The listen overall is enjoyable but, most definitely moody. From the record’s eerie beginning, you know what you’re getting yourself into. Structural, all tracks are put together well, using defined prominent percussion, a haunting lyrical style and a gritty atmosphere to give the Hidden life. Where the album succeeds the most is the albums longer tracks, otherwise, the shorter songs sometimes feel less sustaining and more like interludes. Hidden is worth multiple listens to catch the many layers the band has composed in each song. – David Baker
