Screensaver Release New Single/Video "Permanence"

Aussie post punk/synth wave band screensaver have released their new single “Permanence” and its accompanying video. They’ve also announced they will be touring Europe and UK this August.

The track is out tomorrow, July 5 via Poison City / Upset The Rhythm, and marks their first new music since their sophomore album ‘Decent Shapes‘, released in October last year. Buy it here.

UPDATE 07/15/2024: “Permanence” is our new Single of the Week!

The Melbourne synth-punks blend the dark and moody elements of post-punk and new wave with synth sounds both caustic and cosmic to create a sound that is tense, direct, and often undeniably danceable. ‘Permanence’ is a terse thrill of a song, drawing on pent-up frustration and chronic intensity.

Speaking about it, they say: “‘Permanence’ is a sonic blast of nasty guitars, pummelling drums, rumbling synth and spitfire vocals. The chronic intensity of the verses give way to a commanding chorus injected with underlying glam pop sensibilities. Lyrically the song speaks to repetition, unattainable goals and constant road-blocks. The pent-up frustration present in the lyrics is matched perfectly by the intensity of the music itself.
