Premiere: PC World – Order


“Under exhausted lights of civil discontent the count has just begun. What you parodied, what you scrutinised rears its pure gaze when punctured beyond performance. We cried for justice but instead found order, and now we face the chain.”

Purveyors of dark and synth-laden delights, Berlin-based label She Lost Kontrol kickstart the new year with an eerie offering from South London duo PC World. Marking the pair’s second release, the four original tracks on ‘Order’ aim to “disfigure the unconscious reduction of pleasure and fetish, the connective tissue between privatisation and violence, the seduction of societal norms, and the neurotic tendencies of self-defeat”. 

Sonically the release blends darkwave influences and mutant punk with warped industrial, backed up by two additional takes on the title track from a couple of synth-punk veterans: former member of High-Functioning Flesh, Physical Wash, and Aktion Mutante which features members of Violent Poison and Unhuman.
