Comfort are Sean, Paul and Andrew. A brand new band based in Glasgow who today release their first two tracks as free downloads via their Bandcamp page.
It’s like nothing else I’ve ever heard. On ‘Wealth’ the firey rhetoric, pulsating bass and crushed electronics build tension over 6 full minutes. “Reward is a faint glimmer decaying in the distance, an unachievable stigma” Paul rages over glitchy synths and disorted guitars, rejecting the notion that self-sacrifice leads to achieving economic aspirations.
The second track ‘Anti-Capitalists On MTV’ is just as brutal, as industrial beats Trent Reznor would be proud of push along a vitriolic ‘art vs commerce’ type dialogue.
Comfortable listening this is not. Referencing disenchantment, impotent revolution and an obselete generation, this is the voice of Britain’s angry young Left today, and it’s absolutely brilliant.
