Girls in Synthesis released their debut AA single ‘The Mound/Disappear’ this past week. The release represents the band’s first ever recordings, capturing their live energy and relentlessness. Disappear sees the band apply a metronomic, lopsided groove to their splintered, tearing guitars. The heavy and driving bass riff that underpins the song anchors a deceptively sparse arrangement. The lyrics focus on an individual’s nostalgia for past glories; torturing themselves with vivid memories of their once high status. The confinement and claustrophobia cutting with every lonely, bleak afternoon at home. Take a listen to Disappear via Soundcloud below.
Girls In Synthesis formed in late 2016 to aurally represent the noise and violence of the modern world.
Since playing their riotous debut shows in London last September, the group have established a firm reputation as a live sonic attack on the senses. Shows with Cherry Glazerr, comrades in arms (and Fat White Family side project) Revenue and a particularly intense show for the elite punk promoters DIY Thursdays have solidified their place as intense outcasts on the London circuit.
Listen to ‘The Mound/Disappear’ via SPOTIFY.
Live shows are filled with long periods of noise and feedback, band members running into the audience and garbled Dictaphone audio, featuring dialogue from the UK governments Protect and Survive nuclear war video, Orson Welles speech from the film The Trial and audio from US cult Heaven’s Gate’s suicide video.
