Automatic – the trio of Izzy Glaudini (synths, guide vocals), Lola Dompé (drums, vocals) and Halle Saxon-Gaines (bass) – release “Skyscraper” off their new album Surplus.
Automatic’s 2nd album for Stones Throw, Excessive, rides the imaginary edge where the ’70s underground met the company society of the ’80s or, as the band puts it, “That fleeting instant when what was when great promptly turned and turned mainstream all for the sake of consumerism.”
Working with this place in time as a lens by way of which to view the existing, Automated will take purpose at company culture and extravagance, weaving deadpan critiques into cold wave hooks.
“Skyscraper” imagines a Patrick Bateman sort – the type of sociopath who excels in C-suites and complains about reasonably priced housing going up in his community. Halle points out, “It’s about spending your life generating money and then paying it to fill the void established by explained task.” Lola adds: “Type of like going to LA to reside your dreams.”
Surplus is a definitive arrival instant for Automated. Combining its urgent information with catchy pop hooks and Automatic’s trademark motorik and icy atmospheres, Extra is tight and punchy: danceable music for the finish of days.
Clean from their shows with IDLES, Parquet Courts and two stellar performances at LA’s Cruel Earth Festival about the weekend, Computerized will open for Tame Impala this thirty day period, in advance of heading to Europe for a operate of shows which includes Primavera Audio (Spain), Huge Awake (Uk), and Very best Stored Top secret (NL).
