Funeral Advantage - "Black House"

I first discovered Funeral Advantage at the 2015 Harvard Square Mayfair
Back then, I described them as sounding like just about every song was a Smiths cover, and since I've compared their recorded output to The Cure.

They have a new song out, which is going to lead to some new comparisons. "Black House" might be their peppiest song to date, which may be strange since it's from a band called Funeral Advantage and the song is called "Black House." There is a strong early 80's New Wave sound to the song reminiscent of early Depeche Mode and really early Ministry. This is definitely a dance song that has some throwback elements but still sounds fresh and current. The vocal effects, which are very Autotune-esque at some points, help add to that. It's an interesting slight change of sound, which makes the upcoming album that much more intriguing. 

You can listen to "Black House" below. Nectarine, the new album from Funeral Advantage, will be out February 22 and can be pre-ordered via Bandcamp. For more on Funeral Advantage, be sure to check out their website.
