An onslaught of aggressive post-punk noise from start to finish; Sweat Threats‘ latest single ‘Suffocate’ will leave you gasping for air. The track is accompanied by a set of fast-paced monochrome visuals that show band members Matt & Niall thrashing around their rehearsal space.
‘Suffocate’ is the third single from Sweat Threats, who are comprised of Irish musicians Matthew Sutton (TAYNE), and Niall Jackson (Bouts /Swimmers), and live drummer Lucy Brown (Bad Grammar). The song follows hot on the heels of previous releases ‘Pop My Cherry’ and ‘Hermit’ – both of which are as raucous in sound as their descendant.
With its call and response vocals and raging riffs, ‘Suffocate’ seethes, smolders, and squeezes the life out of its listeners, removing all sense of claustrophobic thought by the time it stops spinning. The track is taken from the bands upcoming debut EP Sweet Treats, which is set to be released on #CassetteStoreDay this October 13th via Wonky Karousel records. Mixed and Mastered by Jesse Gander (Japandroids, White Lung) the EP tackles themes of “abandonment, male toxicity, loss of youth and staying positive in the face of political turmoil”.
The band are opening for Coltana at The Vic in Walthamstow E17 tomorrow (September 12th) for RAW MEAT, so make sure you head down to witness the threat of the sweat in the flesh (RSVP here). Watch the video for ‘Suffocate’ below and follow Sweat Threats on Facebook for more updates.
