This is an excellent slice of doomy alt-rock. Not too much of it these days but this is pure quality…
Permafrost are a mainly Norwegian combo who have a long history but have reformed in recent years and this is their new track.
There are shades of Joy Division, Interpol and The Cure in here but the overall sound is totally original, catchy as hell and for BM’s money one of the best singles of the year….
There are also remixes of the track by MAPS and Paul Corkett, which further expand the track to new horizons, with synth washes and electro-breakdowns. It is a measure of the original track that these work really well, and remind BM of some of the classic Depeche Mode remixes over the decades – highly recommended.
