The Concretes to disband after new record gets 4.7 out of 10 rating on Pitchfork

Swedish band The Concretes have decided to call it quits after a disastrous Pitchfork review declared the new songs as "Elton-meets-Lilith piano-led pounce".
    Lead singer Victoria Bergsman wrote us to say "Maybe the Pitchfork is right, we are no Surfjan Stephens (sic), we start all over."

    You can preview the record (which we think should have gotten a 7.4) "In Colour" here. This will be the only place you can hear it as it's been decided that the CD will be pulled from stores and all copies burned.

    Their song On The Radio has been stuck in my head for the last 3 weeks. Their singer has a gorgeous, unique voice, and I love many of their songs. Frak Pitchfork.
