Someone Here is Missing is: “A record of dark edges, full of love and regret, my life in the last eighteen months pretty much,” according to singer/songwriter Bruce Soord. It also happens to be their best yet.
With 2008’s acclaimed Tightly Unwound album – which launched the renowned Kscope label – the band suddenly found themselves celebrated at both home and abroad. “Everything was suddenly in place for us to move on to the next level as a band,” says Soord, “We just had to make a great record, no pressure then…”
As prolific a songwriter as Soord might be – The Pineapple Thief have a double CD called 3000 Days of extraordinary songs culled from their back catalogue – even he decided to bring new colours to his pallet when creating Someone Here is Missing, adding keyboards and samples of sound to bring the bubbling, almost threatening undercurrent of the band’s songs to life.
