"[Longings] have found their considerable power at the blackened cross-section of cold post-punk lurch and direct, brutal rhythms." - Pitchfork

Longings second full-length album, Dreams In Red, reveals a broad post-punk vision of haunting atmospheres and driving melodies. Eight new songs with a sense of urgency, range from the abrasive to the abstract.
The first single "Expensive Graves" - streaming everywhere now - is a breakneck tight two minute melodic pop gem that will demand several subsequent re-listens.
Of Expensive Graves the band says: “When our lives are in chaos, what becomes of our dreams? Even our means of escape have become a hostile environment. While we may distract ourselves from the path ahead, the end remains certain.”
