Label: Doombox Recordings
Dance music and rock; so often a concoction with all the grim joylessness of a eunuch and a castrato having sex. Combining synths and steel strings, drops and riffs is an equation with the potential to herald the mastery of The Prodigy (who bigged this band’s vocals up), the accessibility of Head Automatica or the turgidity of Pendulum. There tends to be painfully little middle ground in what can be seen to be quite a niche genre. With a listen, ‘Generation Doom’ by Subsource is by far hanging in the lower ranks of the genre; less private club booths and smart-casual suits, more K-hole bass faces and car-boot sale RL.
