Neil Hannon brings his new Divine Comedy album Office Politics to Brighton Dome.
Office Politics, released 7 Jun, is a 16 track tour de force full of inventive, timeless music peopled with a typically irreverent cast of characters. 'It has synthesizers. And songs about synthesizers,' Neil says. 'But don’t panic. It also has guitars, orchestras, accordions, and songs about love and greed.' But Office Politics central characters are the machines. Or ‘Infernal Machines’ as one track rages.
'I do try to make normal records,' Neil says with a smile. 'But it always seems to wander off into odd territories.'
And for that we should be thankful.
