Following a steady stream of ultra-limited 7” singles that were collated together in 2019 for the ‘Pre/Post: A Collection 2016-2018’ on Louder Than War, London trio Girls In Synthesis are finally ready to release their debut album ‘Now Here’s An Echo From Your Future’, set for August 28th on Harbinger Sound. Originally scheduled for release in May and announced with the first bitter taste of ‘Pressure’; one-minute-and-fifty-four seconds of screeching feedback, tribal drums and unbridled rage, as the coronavirus took hold of the world the band made the decision to delay the release of the album. A few weeks on, however, and it feels right to unleash their sonic assault upon the world, returning with another new track, the caustic blast of ‘The Images Agree’, and news of some UK dates in October.
The song features the trademark driving bass and drums, which now forms part of the signature GIS sound. But, on top of this, is unusually dissonant guitar that pulls the listeners focus away from the main melodic and rhythmic elements and towards what could pass as another song altogether. The cutting, abrasive lyrics are dense, even by the band’s standards, and represent the listeners breathless, anxious search for the truth among the lies.
‘Now Here’s An Echo From Your Future’ is their first release for fabled experimental punk label Harbinger Sound and finds the band advancing their sound, making subtle but experimental shifts in texture and tone, helping to break free from the shackled straight-jacket of punk rock that, to be fair, never really held them down in the first place.
Bringing to the table a new and unique sound, Girls In Synthesis are set now with the release of this new album, to follow up their long standing live presence with a permanent record of what gig goers have been loving for so long now.
