This issue’s track is by gloomy newcomers to the scene, Antimony. The minimalist bass and retro synth may have the semblance of being jolly, but under the surface there are sombre depths. Singer Rex Beckett says the lyrics are an ode to the mundanity of the mid-twenties and the accompanying sense of displacement when you are “young, single, broke, and drunk.” The single is off of their debut album, ‘Wild Life’, which hits the streets this summer, just before they warm up for Sigur Rós at the Citadel Festival in London! Yeah, you read that right!

Coldwave Band Antimony Release Dreamy Video
Antimony, a new coldwave band that played its first show in October, has just released its very first music video, and we at the office are digging it. With its slow tempo and melancholic vibe, it reminds us of all the things we miss form the ’80s, both musically and visually.
