Last month saw London based punk rave duo Killdren drop their latest EP, the excellently titled Disguise the Limit.
Featuring 6 tracks of politically charged electronic punk, the release sees them take on topics such as The Royal Family, gentrification, the Tories and modern life. While very much tongue in cheek, the tunes are poised with true punk attitude, and the mix of rave music and punk sensibilities is a nod to the existing back catalogue of the two primary band members Efa Supertramp and Nick Ronin.
The former is a singer-songwriter who is part of the European DIY punk scene with her solo folk-punk act. The latter is a electronic music producer, live performer and free party veteran. Each brings their own energy and talents into the project and they choose to use their uniquely spiky and fun rave-punk fusion to project their political outlook and thirst for change.
Really love the attitude of this release, and I’ve not really heard much else like this around at the moment (happy for people to prove me wrong and send me stuff though). Like all Killdren’s stuff, it’s banging and wicked fun. Love the artwork as well by artist Russell Taysom that ‘depicts a violent Brexit-apocalypse scenario and is fully indicative of the fiery and brutal attacks on all aspects of modern life in the UK that feature within’.
Disguise the Limit is out now for £5 through their Bandcamp.
