Hailing from Auckland/Tāmaki Makaurau in Aotearoa/New Zealand, Coffin Club get taut and frantic on this mighty slice of post-hardcore and post-punk that brings to mind Hot Snakes, Fugazi, Mudhoney and their compatriots Die! Die! Die.
The song deals with themes of exploitation in the workplace, lack of care for low income workers, and trying to cope in a capitalist world despite all the stresses and pressures of life. The bass, guitar and drums are working in chaotic unison, complementing each other yet carving out their own individual jagged paths through the song. Great vocal too, used as much as another instrument in the sense of its placement and as a tension management tool.
The song looks to be the latest in a run of singles and an EP over the last couple of years.
