Thieves Like Us – Really Like To See You Again

Good news! You don’t have to wait another two years for a new Thieves Like Us release. We’re pleased to announce a brand new 4 track EP “Really Like To See You Again” will be available on June 9th on limited 12″ vinyl and digital formats. You can grab a copy direct from us right now or from your favorite record shops on Tuesday.

The title track, “Really Like To See You Again,” is a new recording done in their studio in Paris. To us it sounds like “Low-Life” (New Order) era rhythm mixed over “Key of Dreams” (Section 25) soul… the perfect amount of synth bass, vulnerability, electronic toms, and hope. Both Robert Smith and Peter Hook were unavailable to play that twangy romantic guitar, so the band did it themselves. Sounds authentic too. The second track, “American Skies,” is a politico-socio commentary about the current economic slump. It sounds like a night drive in Miami and one for the dance floor. “Desire,” originally released on “Play Music,” is reworked and remixed for this release and we can’t get it out of our heads. If you loved this track before, this version is even better. The final song “To Joy,” is an old demo and the inspiration of “Really Like To See You Again.” It may just be the most perfect track ever conceived by the band and holds a special place in our hearts. The song was unfortunately left off the last album, so we’re quite pleased it makes it’s proper debut on this release… and on vinyl which it so rightly deserves.
