Fidgeting synths marrying DIY post-punk for ya Monday morning. It comes from a double A-side 7″ from Melbourne’s Astral Skulls, which is a project that likens itself to Sydney’s own BISTRO, Simo Soo, or Alex Cross.
I say “more political”, when really, I just mean common sense. “Sexism Sux” is a tirade against all things overtly masculine set to plonking synth jabs and fierce guitars. Meanwhile, the flip side builds upon Astral Skulls’ previous potential as Sinister Overlord of the Universe, a mean snarl stretched into three minutes of jagged post-punk.
Astral Skulls launch their 7″ this Friday at Valve Bar, joined by Scattered Order, Skull & Dagger, Yes, I’m Leaving, and Dominic Talarico.
