Track Of The Day #256: The Ballet - Is Anybody Out There?

PREMIERE: The Ballet – Difficult Situations


Mighty fine New York trio The Ballet have announce a UK tour in July and August following the release of the exquisite indie-synth-pop of their new album I Blame Society on Fortuna POP! on 10 June. We’re grateful to have been handed the premiere of their new track ‘Difficult Situations’ that’s parred back conflicted pop sound is quite delicious, it “subtly balances gay melancholy with self-deprecating humor and stubborn utopianism.”

They’ll appear at the Indietracks festival as well as headlining London’s The Lexington on 1 August with further dates in Glasgow, Nottingham and Manchester.

26-28 July – Derby UK – Indietracks Festival

29 July – Manchester – Secret Location
