ANNOUNCEMENT! PUBLIQUE - SUPPRESSION/SILHOUETTE 7"
For Immediate Release - 22/01/18
Since the release of their ‘Outlying Self’ EP, Publique have focused their efforts to refine their process and output. The result is ‘Suppression/Silhouette’, a set of songs that are both intricate and intensely aggressive. From the first driving moments of the release the band demands attention, demonstrating a mature understanding of their unique brand of post-punk.
Written in Sydney and Melbourne, with members now based in both cities, the physical distance between the band is palpable on 'Suppression/Silhouette’. Publique have grown more agile, with relentless performances in late 2017 becoming the core of their writing process: a unit that produces results.
On ‘Suppression/Silhouette’ vocalist Connor Bugelli deals with anxiety and the pressures of society. Tension in the music heightens Bugelli’s image of a chaotic world that is inevitably isolating. These personal sensitivities are put on the line, and the product is as confronting as it is cathartic.
‘Suppression/Silhouette' is the first offering from the Publique in 2018, a year that will see the band continue to perform in Australia and abroad, as they gear up for their first full-length release in the coming months.
