Lo-fi punk/shoegaze duo CULTDREAMS (formerly known as Kamikaze Girls) have revealed the video for their new single ‘Not My Generation’—the latest track to be taken from their forthcoming second album Things That Hurt, set for release on 16th August 2019 via Big Scary Monsters Records.
Alongside the new single, the band are delighted to announce a further run of UK/EU headline tour dates for September 2019. Earlier this month the pair announced a run of August UK headline tour dates and an appearance at ArcTanGent Festival in support of the new album (see below for full listings), with tickets for all dates on sale now at: http://www.cultdreams.co.uk
On ‘Not My Generation’ Cultdreams develop their sound once more, leaning heavily into a newfound knack for expansive layering and atmospheric soundscapes. Lyrically, guitarist & vocalist Lucinda Livingstone is as cuttingly incisive as ever, looking back on the time period following the release of the band’s debut EP SAD—on her own mental state, the state of the world, and how it affected her and others around her at that time.
“I see men ignore misogyny, as if it’s not their problem, to act upon their sisters when they get touched inappropriately,” spits Livingstone on the new single, before launching into an attack on the current dire state of UK politics: “While everyone is still suffering, the country that we live in is f*cking everything up. Politics and right wing sh*t. Not letting other people in. Ignoring what matters, whilst investing in ignorance.”
The album’s lead single ‘We Never Rest’ is also out now and features Katie Dvorak and David F. Bello of The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die, picking up BBC Radio One plays from Daniel P Carter and Huw Stephens, and was recently added to Apple Music‘s Breaking Rock and The New Rock playlists.
