London’s Heartworms share avant-garde post-punk cut ‘Consistent Dedication’.

Turbulent and uncompromising, the Dan Carey-produced new single revels in the dark soundscapes of late 70’s/early 80’s post-punk.

Words: Karl Johnson

‘Consistent Dedication’ offers the building blocks of intimate bedroom recordings pushed through the beating heart of a full band line up. It’s hard not to be drawn into the ghostly vocal textures and weightless melodies, the track’s undying drive feels born from a purging of societal ills and the need for explosive change.

As ‘Consistent Dedication’ builds the emotional toll is heart-wrenching, spellbinding as every word is devoured whole by the relentless charge of electronic textures and deep-seated, fluid bass grooves and mantra-esque lyricism.

Born out the soundscapes that cemented Siouxsie and the Banshees and The Cure as cult heroes, Heartworms fuse their own world of gothic-cloaked avant-garde post-punk for a 21st century audience. Fans of Warpaint’s debut EP Exquisite Corpse will find a lot to love.
