After a great run of singles and remixes showcasing the grown-up Synthpop of The Rude Awakening, we are proud to present their debut full-length album - Kaleidoscope.
Featuring all singles (Your Wetness Is My Weakness, Fuck Puppet, To Say Goodbye, Emerald Dancer and Let Nothing Take Your Pride featuring Brooke Calder), Johnny Normal and Bridget Gray arouse our musical senses with a variety of Synthpop songs that are often punk in approach, but always melodic and satisfying our every desire.
Drawing on modern concepts of love in the 21st century, relationships and general life, The Rude Awakening have created something truly unique - pop music for adults without being crass.
This is a truly stunning album.
