Rising London punk trio Girls In Synthesis have announced a new release date for their debut album after it had to be delayed due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Now Here’s An Echo From Your Future was originally scheduled for release in May on the Harbinger Sound label.
In March they unveiled the first taste of the album, Pressure; one minute and 54 seconds of screeching feedback, tribal drums and unbridled rage.
But as the Covid-19 pandemic took hold of the world, the band made the decision to delay the release of the album.
A few weeks on, they decided the time now feels right to unleash their sonic assault, returning with another new track, the caustic blast of The Images Agree, which is available to download now from Bandcamp, including an exclusive dub version.
The album will now be released on 28th August, and the band hope to be able to play some UK dates in October.
Girls In Synthesis are John (vocals/bass), Jim (vocals/guitar) and Nicole (drums), and they have built a growing following with a string of very limited 7in singles.
Those songs were gathered last year for the compilation Pre/Post: A Collection 2016-2018 on Louder Than War.
Now, a few weeks after releasing Pressure, they are back with a second track from the debut album proper, which features their trademark driving bass and drums, plus unusually dissonant guitar which could be from another song altogether.
Since forming in late 2016, Girls In Synthesis have forged a reputation as one of the most exciting and volatile live acts in London, taking their cues from early punk and post-punk bands.
Artwork, videos, performances and recordings are created entirely by the group and a handful of trusted collaborators, under a bedrock of heavy, bludgeoning, dark, post-punk.
Now Here’s An Echo From Your Future is their first release for experimental punk label Harbinger Sound and finds the band advancing their sound, making subtle but experimental shifts in texture and tone.
Across the album’s 10 songs, Girls In Synthesis explore a wide range of subjects, from adin and dying and the rise of the right wing, to mental health and the widening gap between the haves and have nots.
Coronavirus lockdown easing permitting, you can see Girls In Synthesis live at the following dates:
