Modern Waste

by Mutes

'Modern Waste' is a blistering distillation of all that has defined Mutes' explorative take on post-punk until now. Wiry, tense verses give way to muted chamber pop and eventually blossom into a full-on, fuzzed-out, fist-pumping euphoria.

by Erotic Secrets of Pompeii

Well, hello there! We are an apocalyptic art-punk band from Bristol, our latest single is a post-punk noise melee, featuring a pneumatic fuzz bass from Hell, skronking guitars and a preacherman-style vocal charged with a macabre madness. Weird yet catchy is what we aim for.
