Track: Struggles With Syntax – Jung Dreams

London noise punks offer intriguing foretaste of their debut LP.

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.
