Poblicist UK are a band from the United States that plays a mixture of punk, new wave and post metal and this is a review of their "Original Demo Recordings" which will be released in 2015 on 7 Inch by Static Tension Records.
Clean playing and dark sounding synths start off the 7 inch along with some melodic clean singing vocals a few seconds later and you can hear a good mixture of post punk, new wave and goth in the bands musical sound along with all of the instruments bringing in a very powerful presence to the songs.
When the music gets distorted it starts mixing in more of a post metal feeling which also leads to a good mixture of both clean and distorted parts along with some post rock style guitar leads being utilized in the background at times that also use a good amount of melody and there are only 2 songs on the ep.
Publicist UK are a bunch of musicians with a metal background and with this project they decide to go for more of a goth, new wave and post punk style sound while still having a metal influence, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover realistic themes.
In my opinion Publicist UK are a very great sounding mixture of punk, new wave and post metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Never Gone To School". 8 out of 10.
