Fucked Up’s third album David Comes To Life is an 18-song, 78-minute rock opera, aka “an album set to a play.” No word on the exact storyline yet, but we are told it’s more melodic, externalizes their “love of fey British indie pop,” and that there are more female vocals buzzing around Damian — things you wouldn’t need to be told to you after listening to “The Other Shoe.” It’s the first of four singles. It works.
