Australian scuzz rock duo Mannequin Death Squad unleash new single Blue.
The sub 3 minute Blue is the first of a series of mind melting new tracks that will be released through 2019. Of the new single, somewhat ironically released on
Valentine’s Day El says:
"Blue is a song I wrote at 16 years of age in my 90's poster drowned out room. It feels to me like an angst break-up song. It's about who we vilify when we’re feelin’ kinda blue.”
Whereas 2017 saw the two-piece release three singles and the mini-album, Eat Hate, Regurgitate(Integrity Records) and embark on two tours of the UK and Europe, including several dates as special guests of Slaves, 2018 was spent closer to home, winning friends at Australian TV and press with incendiary live shows and releasing the Triple J supported single Honey Punch.
The new tracks find MDS more focused and intense than ever before, picking up on their favourite themes of chaos, fantasy, ignorance, vanity and destruction.
The sonic assault of Mannequin DeathSquad is all the more remarkable with the unholy racket being generated by just Dan and El, alternating on drums, guitar and vocals.
