PROM ANNOUNCE AA SIDE 7″ SINGLE
‘Touch Me’ / ‘I’ll Teach You’ for October 23rd
Live shows with Girl Band incoming
Allow us to introduce PROM, London’s finest new purveyors of minimal, utilitarian, regimented anti-boredom industrial surf music.
Armed with their new AA-side 7” single ‘Touch Me’ / ‘I’ll Teach You’ for self-release on October 23rd, the four-piece arrive kicking and screaming as lead track ‘Touch Me’ lays taboo’s bare. Expect pent-up Freudian urges concentrated down into short, sharp, stark and shrill bursts of barely-contained aggression.
“The vocals are ugly,” frontwoman Angela Won-Yin Mak explains of the track’s brutish motive. “It’s about exploding platitudes and empty, exaggerated, romantic gestures born from guilt, regret and fear. Think of buying flowers when you’ve done something wrong, the flowers seem so ugly in those situations.”
Emerging from the sleazier back alleys of punk and noise in late 2014 with their unhinged debut video ‘Cry Baby Cry’, PROM self-released their debut 7” murder ballad ‘Celebrate’ / ‘Cry Baby Cry’ to acclaim from the likes of NME, DIY, XFM, BBC Radio 1 and 6 Music earlier this year. Having recently laid their clashing industrial tones to tape in an X-posure session with XFM’s John Kennedy, the four-piece will join Girl Band this coming October and November on the UK tour dates below.
