London-based experimental punk trio Girls In Synthesis have shared the video to their latest single, They’re Not Listening.

Their delayed debut album, Now Here’s An Echo From Your Future, is due out on Harbinger Sound on 28 August.

But first they released the video for the third single taken from the album – and it comes with a warning, as its flashing imagery could potentially trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy.

The eagerly-anticipated album was originally scheduled for release in May, but delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The band, who are caustic and confrontational, are considered by many to be the most exciting underground band in the UK.

To call them a punk band doesn’t tell the whole story, as they have influences ranging from disco to dub, while the likes of Crass and Flipper have informed their atonal guitar dissonance.

More of a collective than a conventional band, they and their collaborators create all their own artwork, videos, photos as well as the music, truly embodying the meaning of DIY.

The first taste of the album came in March, when the white heat punk blast of Pressure was released, followed in June by The Images Agree.

Now – after having an incendiary live set recorded earlier this year screened as part of the online Rebellion Festival programme at the weekend – Girls In Synthesis have ushered in their next aural attack with new single They’re Not Listening.

Girls In Synthesis’ debut album will now be released on 28 August.

Taking aim at career politics and the whims of government playing with the lives of people and their vulnerabilities, it’s the harshest single taken from the forthcoming debut so far.

With a UK tour scheduled for October (Covid-19 restrictions permitting) and more UK and EU dates lined up for spring 2021, it’s time for Girls In Synthesis to prove the hype over their early releases was well deserved.

Girls In Synthesis are John (vocals/bass), Jim (vocals/guitar) and Nicole (drums). You can pre-order their debut album from their Bandcamp page HERE.
