London-based experimental punk trio Girls In Synthesis are set to release their debut album 'Now Here's An Echo From Your Future' last year via Harbinger Sound. The band are caustic and confrontational & widely considered by many to be the most exciting underground band in the UK. With the punk tag not quite fitting, the group have acquired a broad range of influences; disco and dub can be found rooted in the rhythm section whilst bands such as Crass and Flipper have informed the atonal guitar dissonance.
In early 2020 the white heat punk blast of 'Pressure' was released and ‘Now Here’s An Echo From Your Future’ was announced. This release was followed by the caustic torrent against mass media manipulation in 'The Images Agree' which saw impressive reviews UK and EU wide. These two releases set anticipation high for the debut album, and for good reason. Album tracks such as 'Human Frailty' explore ageing and death, and includes a winding, improvised violin solo at the songs end. 'Set Up To Fail' splits itself in two, mixing a muted, grinding first half with a horn-led dub second half. Songs 'Tirades of Hate and Fear' and 'Cause For Concern' are studies in bludgeoning, relentless skewed punk and see the groups foundational discord melding with a more subtly melodic influence. Lyrically, the album explores mental health within relationships, right wing manipulation of the working classes, criticism of career politics... this is the tip of the iceberg and not for the faint hearted.
