Treatment – Solitary

Brooklyn’s 80’s sophistipop/dreampop project Treatment announce “Solitary” as the first single to the album “Pond Life” which will be coming out October 18th on Joe Black‘s label Rumore Bianco. 

For the last 7 years, Treatment has been the audible vessel for musician and producer Harry Cubberly. After two quiet EP releases,  Cubberly is now ready to put forth his first full length album. Cubberly: “the album has roots planted in everything from Sophistipop, R&B, New jack swing, and 70s soft rock”. Clocking in at 45:20 and 11 tracks, Cubberly’s latest long-player will be, according to Cubberly himself,  his “densest and most genre-bending yet“.

SingleSolitaryovertly and clearly refers to legendary Prefab Sprout‘s finest works. In fact, it comes so spookily close, and is so cleverly forged, that you absolve the creator from”copying a sound”, but rather approve the capturing of something that, after all, is so dear and fleeting to most of us. “Solitary” is a captivating portrait of 80’s urban romanticism with a contemporary gloss, a welcoming band-aid on the gaping wound left by a lack of new material from the Sprouts themselves or similar sounding Brooklyn projects like Roman a Clef and Ice Choir.  Looking forward to the album!

Treatment are playing Rubulad Sunday September 1st in Brooklyn with Red Sea, Cal Fish, and Dj Jennifer Vanilla and Luxe.
