SONG OF THE WEEK: Protomartyr | Maidenhead

protomartyrsplash

Protomartyr delivered one of my favourite guitar-based records of last year in the dark, post-punk rock of No Passion All Technique so I was pretty excited to see they already have a follow-up recorded and just released. Under Color of Official Right takes the key elements of the last album and improves on them exponentially. The vocals are less barked and approach melodic singing in many parts and there’s more space amid the clatter and rhythmic churn. There are similarities to The Strokes occasionally and Soft Pack often. This is a great record and the opening track is a real ear-worm.
