This is Last Wars‘ take on the Flipper single ‘Get Away’, from the late 70s. I dig the way the different tracks and layers operate in their own segregated corners of the song. Primitive bass grooving away while synths cycle around, getting progressively weirder and wonkier with each digressive spin. The drums sound like they’re lifted from a Sisters Of Mercy practice session while the vocal hits similar goth territory. It’s lo-fi NJ/Philly weirdo post punk and it sticks like glue.
‘Get Away’ is out now on Bandcamp and streaming services and looks to be the latest in a run of singles from the group.
