MP3: Total Control - Paranoid Video
Real austere, urgent "cyberpunk" vibes on this new track from the latest project for analogue heroes Mikey Young (Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Brain Children) and Daniel Stewart (The UV Race). These dudes have made a name for themselves playing enthusiastically sloppy punk rock, but this situation is totally different: drum machines and synths hammering out frosty new wave beats with a general feeling of breathlessness and subdued violence. It's pretty unsettling stuff, really, all droning and atonal and hurried. You can buy it now on their third 7", out now through US label Smart Guy.
