If you couldn’t tell already, we’re extremely pumped for tonight’s Sockets Records showcase at the Black Cat. In this week’s One Track Mind, Leor Galil talks to one of the groups playing tonight, Imperial China, about “Corrupting the Integrity of the Grid,” his favorite song on the trio‘s upcoming album Phosphenes. He writes:
… the track doesn’t rest so much as it swells—with powerful post-punk hooks, a delirious disco-punk beat, and dynamic change-ups. Though worldless, the tune manages to speak volumes with a blistering pace and experimental tone that split the difference between Battles and Fugazi.
Hear the song, and learn why Imperial China gets so passionate about urban planning, here.
