Automatic – Excess (Blue Vinyl)
What our staff has to say: “Amazing NEW synth punk? Yes, it exists – and they aren’t dressed like they’re from The Matrix! Even better :)” – Alex
Excess is Automatic’s new album following their 2019 debut Signal. The band distills themes of 70s and 80s corporate excess, dystopian sci-fi and climate change into catchy, fresh alternative electronic songs sure to find fans among rock lovers of all stripes.
The motorik and icy atmospheres of Automatic’s debut Signal remain, but Excess sees the band widening their scope, folding catchy pop hooks into their sound. The result is a tighter, punchier Automatic: danceable synth-punk for the end of days.
Campaign creative to include several videos and new photos, merch and content tying into album’s themes, from the mirrored bodice on the album cover to a series of photos shot at the Salton Sea and retrofuturistic videos and content.
