It’s a swelling. A pyramid. A crescendo. It stems from living recklessly. And selfishly. And regrettably. It’s an overwhelming anxiety brought on by the biggest and littlest fucking things, and it’s what MEAT WAVE’s new album, The Incessant, is all about.
Recorded with legendary Chicago engineer Steve Albini, The Incessant is a bracing, emotional punk record that confronts taking responsibility for your actions with dark humour and self-deprecation. It draws major influence from The Breeders, Hot Snakes, and even Fiona Apple as much as Franz Kafka’s Metamorphosis, Jeffrey Eugenides’ Middlesex and the poems of Emily Dickinson.
Pre-orders for The Incessant are available now!
