Ganser are a post-punk art rock four-piece operating out of Chicago and now on their second full-length album. Propulsive and discordant, they’re reminiscent of 90’s guitar-driven raucousness from the likes of Sonic Youth or Fugazi occasionally phasing into a retro goth resonance.

Their lyrics encompass a variety of modern dilemmas, such as making poor choices which lead to anxiety and damaging extreme behaviours on the opening track Lucky, to how it may feel witnessing the end of the world through social media for the closing track Bags For Life. Alicia Gaines and Nadia Garofalo share wonderfully sneering introverted vocal duties over an increasingly mature sounding, urgently explosive yet musically epic noisescape that’s been a year in the making.
