Coinciding with their 10th anniversary THE SWEEPS return with a new studio album BRIGHT AFTER SUNSET. Synthpop melancholy dominates the opening track IMAGINATION and becomes full circle by the album closer KILLING THE DAY. In between THE SWEEPS are flirting with deep house (HOW DO YOU WANT MY LIFE) new wave (HIDE MY SHADOW) or seasick keyboard textures (LOST SOULS). All in all this is grownup pop even on the 2 instrumentals (the spacedout TRANSMISSION & sappy FILBYS THEME) but always pop nonetheless. Deliciously crisp and layered!
