Don't expect a barrel of pop frivolity with Semantics. The title of this cut, 'Acid Test', accompanied by a dark and moody black-and-white video, sort of give a clue before you get any further.
'Acid Test' is the first single from the Birmingham post-punk band's upcoming second EP of the same name, produced by Ryan Pinson and released on September 9.
Following last year's 'My Detainer' and 'Games', this latest treads the same brooding path as its predecessors, giving vocalist Rob Lilley a vehicle in which to drive his downcast voice, against disturbingly eerie guitars.
