New Band of the Day #140: Abdomen


New single ‘Lies’ out now.

Who: Peter van Beets – Guitar/Vocals, Redmer de Boer – Bass, Roel Meijer – Drums/Backing vocals.

What: Post-punk.

Where: Leeuwarden, Netherlands.

Why: Is there such a thing as lethargic energy? Is that an oxymoron? That’s what Dutch post-punks Adbomen seem to offer on new single ‘Lies’. There’s a wonderfully off the cuff energy here for sure. The bass is propulsive. The guitars are fuzzy. And the vocals from Peter van Beets are cathartic. However, having said all that, there seems to be something entirely lethargic about it too. Perhaps apathetic. I don’t know. I could be talking nonsense. Have a listen and make your mind up for yourself. For a point of reference, they seem in line with the current crop of ferocious punks coming out of Denmark. Quality.
