Volk Soup: Beware An Historical Door
DL by way of Bandcamp
Volk Soup return with a schizophonic post-punk brutalist takedown of recent social energy dynamics…and Prince Andrew.
When Ged Babey coated Volk Soup’s final launch, Billionaire, three adjectives sprung to his thoughts: nihilistic, petulant, ingenious. On their new launch, Beware An Historical Door, they’ve doubled down on all three throughout a sprawling seven-minute observe that twists by means of type and kind, Janus strolling a serf by means of adorned palace halls whereas Prince Andrew’s pent-up rage from his fall from entitled grace is heard screaming from someplace inside. The band are taking the Prince firmly of their sights, stating that the primary half of the tune is a dialogue between Child Grumpling and somebody questioning his actions, whereas the second half descends right into a tirade towards those that dare query his gilded existence. At its core is an intense questioning of the state of energy in society, one which has more and more come into query in recent times…to typically far little impact.
Anybody who had pegged the band as simply one other post-punk band are in for a shock. Beware An Historical Door is far more expansive than anticipated, careering throughout jittering beats, blasts of brass and sudden jolts that smash you within the face with its sudden turns. A simple pay attention? Couldn’t be farther from it. An important pay attention, little doubt!
Volk Soup are positively ones to look at.
