Units - Animals They Dream About


Label Units

Shelved since 1982 due to label issues at the time, UNITS unreleased sophomore LP Animals They Dream About finally sees the light of day for all to hear, taking the bands synthpunk sound in a slightly more synthpop/new wave direction. At this point a four piece, UNITS still employed the live components and arch observation that were a key to their contemporary punk tinged electro sound, whilst embracing a greater sense of mood and melody. As the Eighties progressed some of the synth textures present here would become commonplace, but the UNITS were doing it back in 81 for the recording of this lost synth gem, making their 2nd LP something of a testament to what could have been had it not been for the cruel mistress that is the ‘music biz’.
