I'm not really sure that is the message they intended in LBN, but it's way too early for me to construct a sensible one. Their feminism has always, like their politics, been very clumsy and incoherent though.

"The person depicted has absolutely nothing to do with the here and now. In this case, fashion functions as a "tiger's leap" (Tigersprung) into the past, as Walter Benjamin once so aptly put it; however, it is not that the past is brought back to life, but rather the very fact that it is over, its radically outmoded "feel" and the sense that it is gone forever are forcibly brought to our attention. These clothes do not bring the past alive or into the present. Rather, they conjure up the sense of the bygone. For this reason, the person depicted on the photograph usually seems utterly out of place, incongruous, inappropriate, shoehorned into absurd geometric correspondences. The clothes may be an allegory for this carefully "fitted" incongruous inappropriateness, although these almost never have to be made to fit the person shown in the picture. The figure in these selfportraits does not have a place anywhere; her time is not the present, and the moment depicted is an impossibility. In a very literal sense, Catrine Val invests herself in others: she puts on her own children's clothes or those of old ladies who have, with heavy heart, handed over their best garments to a thrift shop. She dispossesses her own body, which she then turns into a stage for the self-fashioning of others. This makes her into a self-stranger. She gathers the trophies of past styles."


Seems like it could be somewhat apt for futurology.

My dislike of the potential album cover is on a purely aesthetic level. If there is meaning to the image that has relevance to the material on the album, that's great. But I don't like the picture.

Manic Street Butchers?

Personally, I don't mind the artwork if it goes on to be the front cover for the new album. I have to say though that there is an undercurrent or a suggestion in the picture that makes me feel a little uneasy/queasy. I can't quite put my finger on it.

Where's that confounded bridge, then?

The Q editor said a few weeks back on twitter that they'd done a track inspired by the Øresund Bridge so presume it's this one
