London post punk/electronic trio MADMADMAD have revealed their new double single “Do You” / “Shambles“, out now via Bad Vibrations.
This is the band’s first new music since their 2020’s second album More More More. Buy it here.
Shaped by the mutant sounds of ’70s no-wave, post-punk and disco, MADMADMAD – comprised of Benji, Kevin and Matt – rocket their influences into a new dimension. Their unique sound seeks deliverance from the chaotic and strange times we are now living through, infused by the band’s alien live party set, oozing dance bass lines, spiky guitars riffs and fizzing drums.
Once again recorded in their experimental warehouse lab, the two tracks show contrasting sides of the trio: while ‘Do You’ locks into a hypnotic groove before coming to life with cascading synths that beckon you to the dancefloor, ‘Shambles’ fizzes with a combustible energy that threatens to explode at a moment’s notice, all syncopated, fidgety beats and propulsive basslines. What courses through both tracks, though, is a sense of mischief and playfulness exuded in every note MADMADMAD lay to tape and that’s bound to be present in abundance across their summer dates.
Of ‘Do You’, the band said:
” Do You is about being yourself without asking permission. It’s a hypnotic, dance floor-ready anthem that makes you want to let the goof out, in a playful invitation to dance your troubles away, like Archie Bell beaming from darker space. A deranged sonic ride with an irresistible feel-good factor.”
