If anyone looked like they really needed a cup of tea and a sit down, it’s Wargasm. The electro punk duo have a lot of pent up stress that needs releasing, and they’ve found the best way to do that is via high-octane, snarling tunes about how terrible everything is.

Blending the early 00s trifecta of punk, nu-metal and rap rock, Wargasm make for a pretty mind-melting listen. Dual frontpeople Milkie Way and Sam Matlock tackle every song with their polarised vocal styles, because throaty screams and sickly sweet singing clash in the most unusual way. Latest single Salma Hayek pays tribute to the actress tranced out vampire dance with their usual harsh angst and slightly blasphemous imagery. It’s a controversial formula, but it’s working: since their formation in 2018, Wargasm have already made it onto bills alongside alt. artist Yungblud and goth rockers Creeper, featured at Reading and Leeds and Download Pilot, and bagged themselves the Heavy Music Award for Best UK Breakthrough Band this year – all impressive accomplishments given the flunk of 2020.

Now that Wargasm have found their footing, it’s about time they embarked on a proper tour of their own: expect strobe lights, busted mics and colourful language at their Northumbria University show.

Wargasm play Northumbria University, Newcastle on Saturday 20th November
