If you’re looking for something completely out of step with the current music trends, then look no further than Subtopian Planning Board. With their previous releases including Things We Couldn’t Kill and Atrapasueños, the four-piece have followed up their experimental blend of alternative rock with a new single titled Age Of Anxiety.
The third and final release from the band this year, Age Of Anxiety reflects the downward spiral of twenty-first-century society and cultures, with Subtopian Planning Board highlighting the dark underbelly of modern life throughout the track. Almost reminiscent of alt-indie act Fight Like Apes, the combination of a groove-oriented bass line, a shrilling guitar, and a chant-like chorus adds a dynamic edge to the song.
Subtopian Planning Board bring a dystopian vision to the forefront of the psychedelic music scene. With its unusual and catchy melody, Age Of Anxiety perfectly captures the Orwellian unease of modern living. A must-listen for sure.
