The Necks 18th album Vertigo is an eventful, kaleidoscopic tone poem set against a darkly shimmering background. Slowly but inexorably moving forward, it crosses many frontiers yet remains true to the mission and mood established in the opening stanzas of this cinematic 44 minute journey. A work able to be viewed either as a whole, or two symmetrical halves, Vertigo sees The Necks once again offer an excursion in sound that reflects both the light and darkness of some. Vertigo will be released on 30th October in North America by Northern Spy Records
Vertigo is the Necks’ 18th album and second for the New York label Northern Spy, the group’s first stable American home. Like many of its predecessors, Vertigo runs as one uninterrupted track, with 44 minutes roughly split between two interwoven movements.

Vertigo, The Necks’ eighteenth album, falls into neither of those two groups. Or rather, while containing elements of both – the busy and the airy – it sounds, again, totally distinctive. At first, the clamouring piano chords and deep bass drone call back both to the tumult of Drive By and urgency of those live shows. There are abrupt percussion bursts, occurring seemingly at random, as well as sudden clangs of what could be prepared piano. An incessant rain of silvery chime tones becomes as tense and oppressive as the soundtrack to a horror film. What’s interesting about Vertigo is how, as it progresses, the trio messes with its flow. It’s as if they’re acknowledging that the precision of Open resulted in something almost too perfect, like a beautiful artefact in an empty white room, something so carefully constructed that any humanity somehow slipped away.
