Today brings us a slab of chugging goth-tinged post-punk from Warrang/Sydney crew Enclave. The band’s new track ‘Crossfire’ is a gristly, caustic and acrimonious assault – a fury-laced indictment of systems that perpetuate trauma, dispossession and oppression.
Brisbane goth-punk trio Occults are finally releasing a new seven-song LP comprised of tracks recorded back in 2017. Celebration is the final word from the leather-clad crew, capturing the band’s bleak and critical worldview that positions them as eerie prognosticators of what was to come.
