Gender Roles - 'You Look Like Death'
Brighton based Indie Punks, Gender Roles, bring us a new track this week titled ‘You Look Like Death’. It’s the first single from their upcoming debut album, PRANG, to be released August 30th. To date the band have released a couple of EPs with this upcoming album being the biggest and most eagerly awaited dose of the bands hooky punk rock so far. If this song is anything to go by, it'll be a killer debut.
The track starts out with jangling guitars and intertwining vocals as the song works towards it’s first chorus. This comes subdued and pent up, keeping things tense all the way through the next verse. The track explodes into life when that second chorus hits. It’s an energetic, infectious romp that keeps on giving. Fans of the bands previous tracks will find plenty to love, You Look Like Death is every bit as listenable as their previous releases. This only makes me more excited for the band's upcoming album.
The band will be playing various shows throughout the summer as well as embarking on a headline tour in support of the upcoming album. Grab some tickets and enjoy the energy and melodies in person!
