MP3: Eddy Current Suppression Ring - Anxiety

This new track from Melbourne’s finest gang of misfits is as ADD and infectious as you’d hope from the band who brought unpretentious punk rock back (why the fuck did it ever go away?). ECSR always seem to be careening along on the edges of control, and Anxiety, from (I think?) their forthcoming third album INGENIOUSLY edges up the production values while still sounding like a bunch of bros fucking around in the shed. The slightly more polished sound suits them real nice, too: this is an instantly likeable track, but it points to a sound that could push Eddy Current Suppression Ring from a very, very good band to a great one. Will this album be their Marquee Moon? Will a squillion people buy it and make them ultra-famous and a bit jaded? Will they? Will their stadium extravaganza show feature carnies like Britney did? Rhetorical question? Boy, I can’t wait to see!
