With two EPs under their belt, aptly titled Autobahn 1 and Autobahn 2, Leeds’ AUTOBAHN are ready to enter into the full-length album world with the release of Dissemble in August. “Society” exists in the middle of the record, a steady, pulsing take on post-punk. Vocalist Craig Johnson’s low howls, especially within the first mellow minute of “Society,” ring similar to those of fellow UK lad King Krule. Johnson notes that lyrically, the song is a critique of a fragmented and harsh society:
This song encapsulates a longing for a complete society, a society where people won’t be judged, where people can have faith in humanity. We don’t live in that place now, especially with this government, but we can change this.
Dissemble is out 8/21 on Tough Love Records. You can preorder it here.
