Neutrals – Personal Computing / In The Future [Listen]

I must have stepped back in time when listening to the two songs and thought they sounded British.
I was wrong but I can’t stop listening.
Neutrals are a punk band from the San Francisco Bay Area, channeling a wide range of ’70s and ’80s punk, post-punk, and indie-pop influences. [Well the lead singer is from Glasgow Scotland, just living in America]
Few weeks ago they dropped their 7″ single Personal Computing with In The Future via Slumberland Records.
Have a listen to both tracks.


About the tracks:
“Personal Computing” and “In The Future” is their new single and has the distinction of being the final entry in the Slumberland Record’s SLR30 Singles Series.
Both sides were recorded just before the COVID-19 lockdown began and share a bittersweet nostalgia for an imagined rose-tinted future that never was.

The mood of thwarted utopian dreams feels all too appropriate right now and the tense, angular songs on this single are an ideal soundtrack for this unsettled moment.


Personal Computing / In The Future gets:
/10.
