Rezension

Da werde ich dann doch neugierig, wenn gleich mehrere gut informierte Auskenner aus dem Bekanntenkreis eine Band hypen. Girls In Synthesis sind Labelmates von Sleaford Mods bei Harbinger Sound und spielen ziemlich derben Postpunk der neuesten Generation. Mit nervöser Rhythmik und eskalierenden Gitarren, hart geshouteten Vocals und einer rabiaten Attitüde. Junge Burschen also mit reichlich Adrenalin und Testosteron, die meistens richtig Gas geben. Die gebellten und eher sprechgesungenen Vocals erinnern tatsächlich ein bisschen an Sleaford Mods, die effektgeladenen Gitarren machen sich hier aber in allen Ecken breit: mit derben Riffs und hingeworfenen Feedbacks. Durch diesen Wall Of Sound (von nur drei Leuten inszeniert!), der auch noch mit spacigen Dubeffekten angereichert wird, dringen dennoch die Vocals durch. Man stelle sich eine Mischung aus Eight Rounds Rapid, Fontaines DC und Nerven vor. Gespeist von der Energie der jungen Gang Of Four und meinetwegen auch Arctic Monkeys oder Babyshambles. Kein Wunder, dass die junge Band aus London damit offene Türen bei der Britpresse einrennt. Dabei wollen Girls In Synthesis keineswegs gefallen, sondern prügeln ihre Songs konsequent schlecht gelaunt und aggressiv heraus. Fulminantes Debüt und vermutlich der Next Generation-Punkrock der Stunde. (Joe Whirlypop)

Review

Following a steady stream of ultra-limited 7" singles, that were collated together in 2019 for the 'Pre/Post: A Collection 2016-2018' on Louder Than War, the bands highly-anticipated debut album, by those that know, arrives. Since forming in late 2016, Girls In Synthesis have quickly forged a fearsome reputation as one of the most exciting and volatile live acts in London. In equal parts frantic, considered, ear-splitting and melodic, the group take their cues from the early DIY punk and post-punk pioneers to keep everything in-house; artwork, videos, performances and recordings are created entirely by the group and their handful of trusted collaborators, under a bedrock of heavy, bludgeoning, dark, post-punk. 'Now Here's An Echo From Your Future' is their first release for fabled experimental punk label Harbinger Sound and finds the band advancing their sound, making subtle but experimental shifts in texture and tone, helping to break free from the shackled straight-jacket of punk rock that, to be fair, never really held them down in the first place. Across the album's ten songs, Girls In Synthesis explore a wide range of sensations and sounds as the album detonates into life with opening track 'Arterial Movements' in a screeching flurry of over-driven guitar and hammering drums. The contrast between the slow, mesmerising look into aging and dying in 'Human Frailty' ('The realisation that you cannot halt their impending death'), to the aggressive attack on the rise of the right-wing in 'They're Not Listening' ('The time-old tradition of the right wing accosting desperate working class people has returned') shows a wide range of subjects and reactions aggressively tackled. Mental health in a fast-moving, unforgiving world, media control, the divide widening between the have and the have nots, the class divide, the blaming of the poor, NHAEFYF bristles with an unforgiving frustration and temper. The recording of NHAEFYF started at Rockit Studio, Hull in April 2019 during days off on the UK tour to promote the 'Pre/Post' compilation album. The Hull sessions were engineered by studio owner and local musician Sean Tomlinson. The remainder of the album was recorded and engineered by the band throughout summer 2019 in a large rehearsal room at Gun Factory studios, Homerton. Production and finishing touches were completed at GIS bassist John's S.I.C.K Studio in Hither Green. The album was mixed by long-time band collaborator and engineer, Max Walker. In their few years of existence, fans and critics alike have been stunned by the bands pure visceral and punishing wall of sound, as well as applauding the groups way of making a GIS show an all-inclusive experience; playing from within the crowd to create a unique and awe-inspiring spectacle. Being hand-picked to support acts as diverse as Damo Suzuki, Slaves, Bad Breeding, Warmduscher and Wolf Alice has seen a widening of the groups fan base. Sold out headline shows across the UK have led to frantic and chaotic performances, and packed, sweaty venues, the word is getting out and spreading rapidly.
