Reliably informed

Noisy post-punk troubadours Witness Protection Programme are set to release their highly anticipated EP Long Weekend: Towards The Age Of Leisure this month, and it’s clear that the band have used the global pandemic to their advantage – honing their unique sound in the silence of the world.

Kicking off the EP is the single Buying Mood, a relentless frenetic frenzy of anti-capitalism; 900 changes up the sonic style, bringing a more controlled melodic approach with jangly delayed guitars; the aptly titled Shitstorm flips the release on its head into a stride through a murky mire of pummelling rhythm, and the title track ends the EP with an anthemic journey through the trials of a non directional lockdown. One to listen out for.
