RIYL: Deep 80â€™s synth bass percolating under the circuit-swamp-fried-egg guitar
Label: Castle Face Records
Castle Face Records has POW!‘s new vinyl release available for preorder today!
They have a limited variant up for grabs, but act fast – these don’t last long!
POW! continue their danse macabre in the laser glow of their hi-beam synthesizers, with a new batch of synth-punk candy to rot your teeth to.
Vacuum-sealed, chrome gleaming, propulsion pounding, eyebrows arched and slightly pixelated like the cupie-doll face beckoning from a digital billboard outside your hovercraft window. From a none-too distant dystopia and on to your turntable – VCFs slowly open across a smogged-out horizon as they urge you to take that Necessary Call, warn moodily against a Cyberattack, and inexplicably Crack an Egg in honor of the human raceâ€¦as you do. Synthetic earworms squirm into and out of view out like twinkling city lights through eveningâ€™s opaque air, feasting on terse punk skeletons. The neon is buffed to an aerosol sheen by Chris Woodhouse behind the blinking motherboards, with a streetlight or two of Gary Numan’s slanting through the door. The automatons know where the partyâ€™s at – follow them.
