“Labour-oppressive wellness initiatives; machinic lubricants. Half a decade of unprocessed bitterness, constricted by social norms as corporate structures. The Program fails through successive firmware updates while, in the background, slideshow graphics show that rage tends towards infinity. The face of a destabilised workforce in a society that secretes symbolic concessions as a defence reflex against meaningful change. Your positive attitude is keeping us all in line.” - Emil Mniszko

Watch: ASHRR Air New Single/Video "Waves"

Los Angeles  darkwave/post-punk band ASHRR have aired the video for their latest single "Waves".

Speking about it, the band said: “Since our formation, Ashrr’s sound has been in a constant state of flux as we continually draw inspiration from the creative forces that surround us. Our musical journey led us to a style that explores elements of sound from across the spectrum of rock, from adrenaline fueled post-punk and brooding dark wave to futuristic analog synth and primal guitar driven rock, with all roads leading to our new single ‘WAVES’.”

“’WAVES’ is about life’s struggles, redemption, and the guttural instinct for survival against impossible odds and the realization that by letting anxiety wash over you and pass, you can free yourself.”

New Entry: Thrillhouse Unleash New Single "2045"

Brighton-based  indie/dance-punk/alt band Thrillhouse have unleashed their new single "2045".

The song is out today (August 28th) via Seymour Butz Records. Grab it here.

As is probably fairly clear, the members of Thrillhouse don't take their image too seriously; a refreshingly drab look in a notoriously vain industry. The songs, the music, the lyrics; the stuff that matters (to them anyway), has a real sincerity to it that is cleverly juxtaposed with joyful instrumentation. The story is clear, and real, and personal, but it's not inviting sympathy; it's inviting you to share in the crushingly ordinary joy of everyday life as it passes by.

Taking inspiration from old favourites Bowie, Talking Heads among many others, 2045 is part old-school, part new-wave, part the future.

New Entry: The Receivers Release New Single "Only Human"

Yorkshire fuzzed-up indie-rockers The Receivers have released their new single "Only Human".

Recorded at Sugar House Music in St Helens, the single was written by lead singer Nick Aldous about wanting to be the best version of himself: "I’ve always felt a bit like I’m putting on an act when I’m on stage and I’d rather just be myself about it. The lead lyric, “I don’t want to be myself, but I don’t want to be anyone else” is inspired by not wanting to be a character and wanting to be a better version of myself when on stage and in the studio".

The track is out today (August 28) and it’s an anthemic song, harnessing self-belief and new-found confidence, in the vein of the likes of The Jesus & Mary Chain, The Cribs, Elastica and more.
