If ‘Bear Cubs’, the latest offering from Museum of Bellas Artes, was a slightly new direction for the Stockholm based trio (which it was), then its accompanying b-side, ‘Dead Silence, is a sharp u-turn (and it is). MBA is staying true to their roots of balearic-tinged disco pop – last heard on the amazing and highly recommended Days Ahead EP – but they’ve definitely gone with a more downtempo, dark and sincere vibe on this new single. And we can’t help but love it. Listen to the short and sinister showstopper ‘Dead Silence’ below, and let serious anticipation of the forthcoming full-length, due out later this year, commence.

The 7″ single ‘Bear Cubs’ comes out tomorrow via Force Majeure, but it’s already available digitally on Amazon.
