Erland & The Carnival make a new album

It’s a curious thing to have a trailer for an album, but when Erland & The Carnival make one for their upcoming full length release, Nightingale, it really works. With images of fleeing children, death and waving scarecrows in an early 20th Century setting, the sinister and ominous music seems ever so fitting for a Hitchcock-esque horror film, adding a great visual companion to the music.

The album is set to be released on March 29th from this English band that is one part dark folk, one part Pulp like Brit-pop and the rest just pure rock. Judging from the album trailer and the music video for “Map of an Englishman” off Nightingale, we’re in for equally exciting aesthetics inspired by the music.
