It’s been a minute since we’ve heard anything new from The Virgins. After falling off the map following the release of their debut album, they’re now back making music, sounding as great as ever. After releasing the extremely lo-fi “Island Girl” almost a year ago (that post also includes a bit/lot of backstory on the band) they’re now ready to release a brand new album, called Strike Gently and due out March 12th, on Julian Casablancas‘ (yes, of The Strokes) Cult Records.
Preceding the release is this new song, called “Flashbacks, Memories and Dreams”, which – lack of an oxford comma aside – is actually a pretty great piece of dance rock. Though a tad more polished than the stuff on their debut EP, it’s still rough around the edges, and very catchy. Even sounds a bit like a guitar-based Chromeo, don’t you think?
