Automatic Share Skyscraper Single

I’ve definitely been enjoying the jams from Automatic‘s forthcoming album, Excess, but I’m certainly a bit wary too. I mean, how does a band come out swinging with this mellowed post-punk and slick production; it feels like its a direct response to the 70s punk bravado…spun through this more futuristic lens. This new track crawls under your skin like some microscopic organism, embedding itself in your being as it seductively drops the chorus on repeat. The band are three for three with their singles, so I’ve got nothing but excitement for the forthcoming LP; it drops officially on June 24th via Stones Throw.

I don’t know what it is about Automatic, but the band seems almost too cool for me to listen to on a regular basis. Today they drop another track from their forthcoming Excess LP, and I just can’t help but get sucked into their tunes. At its bare bone, the songs are these bopping exercises in rhythm, with little else moving through aside form the bass and drum work. Yet, there’s something in the way the vocals feel sheepishly hip, like they’re unaware how much cool exists in their craft. They remind me of this weird mixture of Deep Time and Pylon, thrown in with a nod back to 60s pop groups; Excess is going to rule, and it drops on June 24th via Stones Throw.

Rock n’ roll was meant to be fun, and if you ask me, no one seems to be having as much fun as Automatic are in their brand new single. Toying with the listener, it comes in with this sort of dream pop montage, but then immediately drops in this stomping beats and thudding bass. Once that gets going, the vocals get a little more energetic, like they’ve been called to arms, called to have an all out blast with you, the listener. And those heavy stabbing synth notes, before the snare claps, well, they make this a ripper. You’ll find this ditty on Excess, the band’s new record out this June via Stones Throw.
