Ahead of the release of their debut album, ‘Petrichor’, next month, London noise punks Struggles With Syntax have released a new single taken from it, titled ‘Jung Dreams’. The track is considerably faster-paced than the band’s earlier single, ‘Monday Bluez’, featuring vocals from frontman Jo Llewellyn-Jones that recall Mclusky’s Andrew Falkous and tunic’s David Schellenberg.
The pace is frenetic and urgent throughout, replete with angular, USA Nails-esque guitar lines from Ben Humphreys. ‘Jung Dreams’ is accompanied by a visually distinctive video in which Llewellyn-Jones sings the song manically to a cuddly toy with whom he is having a domestic dinner. To promote the release of ‘Petrichor’, Struggles With Syntax will play a launch show at London’s Bow Triangle Business Centre on November 2nd, with support from Muscle Vest.
It should be a great night, as their July gig at Signature Brew in Haggerston was a hugely enjoyable (and drunken) way of ushering in the summer’s live music cycle. ‘Petrichor’ is released via MUZAI on November 19th.
