Unashamedly lo-fi the quartet distill the spirit of punk into short pithy songs covering everyday occurrences and foibles.

Our release for January 17th is from The Screaming Love Collective.

Human Traces Opt 2

It is their 11th release with us and follows on from last years “Do What You Love”.

The Screaming Love Collective are a psychedelic punk rock dark disco groove sensation  – they take electronic dance music and add some extra layers from a variety of other genres to create an infectious and sometimes dangerous aural cocktail.

Sounds vary between motorik dance repetition via mutant reggae/dub, hypnotic arpeggiating, grime leaning sonic attacks and slow funky workouts and even a little bit of post-punk.

The new album is called Human Traces and is a digital only release – it comprises 11 brand new tracks. Here’s a taster……

It will be available from Bandcamp, Spotify, Apple Music and all of the other digital outlets.
