Fortuna POP! Takeover

It's the final day of the Fortuna POP! takeover and the label have prepared something very special...

Turning 15 years old and still fresh faced, the label has provided a long term home for Comet Gain. Returning with their new album, Fortuna POP! have gifted ClashMusic the first track from said LP to be heard anywhere on the planet.

Formed in London, England, in 1993, and influenced as much by the riot-grrrl movement as by the music of the girl-group era, Comet Gain mix punk-pop aesthetics with a more abstract northern soul sensibility.

Magical, passionate and emotional, inspired in equal parts by The Go-Betweens, Godard, Irma Thomas, dance parties, Dexy's Midnight Runners, falling in love, mod and hootenannies, Comet Gain are one of the finest British bands of our time.

Their new album "The Howl Of The Lonely Crowd", recorded partly with Edwyn Collins and Ryan Jarman of The Cribs at Edwyn's own West Heath studios and partly with Brian O'Shaunghessy (St. Etienne, Primal Scream, My Bloody Valentine), will be released on Fortuna POP! in 2011. And this is the FIRST track from it to be heard anywhere.
