Darkly brooding post-punk new single released last week, from the dark and brooding post-punk Birmingham four-piece Semantics.
‘My Detainer’, recorded and mixed by Ryan Pinson (the man behind the desk for a growing number of West Midlands' bands), is the second single from the band's forthcoming EP which they plan to release this spring. Opening on some nice guitar, it's when Rob Lilley's deep baritone vocal and drums kick in that it really takes off, with some marvellous guitar riffs coming at the midway point. Proper brightens a Tuesday...in a dark way.
