Post Punk


Hologram is the first release from New York Post-Punk legends A Place To Bury Strangers on their own newly formed label, Dedstrange. It is the follow up to their highly regarded fifth album, Pinned, and is a sonic return to A Place To Bury Strangers’ rawest, most unhinged sound. 2021 welcomed a line-up change, with …

Cambridge’s Tom Lumley and the Brave Liaison today release a scything and anthemic track, ‘Fake Friends’, that is a scintillating post punk bash filled with energy and attitude. The guitar attack is sparkling and crunchy, the rhythm section insistent and thunderous and the vocals and melodies urgent and indelible. The track is off the band’s …

The dark sonorous vocals of TV People have carved out a deliciously icy sculpture resting on the delicate instrumentation of ‘Out of the Silence’. There is an imperious and measured delivery, arctic scaling guitars and a meditative pace that evokes a sense of mystery and enigma. ‘Out of the Silence’ very much springs from the …

There is a power and intensity to the new single ‘Disco’ from Brooklyn band Geese that belies their young age and explains why they have been signed to the eminent label Partisan Records. Initial impressions are that this is a band that has been influenced by the Irish wave of post punk bands like The …

Adelaide’s Nocturnal Animals are by no means your average indie rock band. They have garnered a lot of attention not only for their unique full throttle angular attack but also their theatricality and propensity for dramatic skeletal make up that makes you think of the Mexican festivities Día de Muertos. We premiered their single ‘Articuna …

‘Eat Acid See God’ is the new single from Italy’s finest psychedelic punks The Gluts. It is an early taste of the Milan-based band’s fourth album which they have recently finished recording with producer Bob De Wit (A Place To Bury Strangers, White Hills, The Sonics, Gnod). Not yet announced but pencilled in for release …

Astari Nite have perfected a deep dark gothic songwriting craft that is deliciously enjoyable, poised and full of swagger. The new single, ‘Pocketful of Posies’ does not deviate: it is another elegantly crafted slice of gothic heaven – lead singer Mychael’s voice sonorous and powerful, the instrumentation insistent and driving. Mychael enigmatically says of the …

Second Idol‘s powerful EP ‘Defence Mechanism’, reviewed by me here, is a refreshing blast of indie rock, and the band has just released a video for the brilliant track ‘Out of Time’. It’s a simple performance piece that reinforces the fact that this is a band with an enormous presence and enigmatic style. Cool, louche …

Like some dark demonic apparition, Edith Thomas Furey‘s new track ‘Evenings in the Park with Charles (Part 3)’ looms in the darkness of the night with a brooding, foreboding prowl, close to the ground with teeth bared. It is an absolutely delicious piece of post punk gloom – a roaming throbbing bass, crystal-cut guitars that …

Having given it a couple of months to ferment on the internet, Shame are releasing the audio from their performance film ‘Live in the Flesh’ for Record Store Day (albeit that you can stream it now). The vinyl will be available on 12 June, if you can find it. You can also catch them on …
