DIY Magazine says: “Preoccupations have shed their claws. ‘New Material’ showed a band shifting to more melody than the aggressive bite of debut ‘Viet Cong’. And with their fourth album, ‘Arrangements’, the transformation is complete… With Holy Fuck’s Graham Walsh behind the desks, it gives them the confidence to really lean in to something new. It takes a while for Preoccupations to find their new groove on ‘Arrangements’. But, when they hit that stride in the latter half, it’s a terrific one.”

TUTV: Preoccupations are in the middle of the crossroads where Interpol, Psychedelic Furs, The Dream Syndicate and Joy Division‘s bassist Peter Hook meet for a psychedelic jamboree that leads to a black and white soundtrack for these grim times. Thought-rovoking and transfixing with a disquieting aftertaste.
