We caught up with Ben from scuzz punks LUMER to find out what they’re currently listening to.
Protomartyr – Why Does It Shake
Choosing only one song from these guys was hard, both albums are amazing. This song has one of the best time changes we have heard in a long time. Just all around brilliance.
Parquet Courts – Ducking and Dodging
All around ace band, we are all huge fans of these guys! Lyrically these truly stand out to us along with the likes of Protomartyr. Ace stuff!
Bad Breeding – Age of Nothing
This song never fails to get you pumped. Raw Punk with brilliant and relevant lyrics, we are big fans of these fellas at the moment.
The Cure – A Strange Day
Amazing song by an amazing band. The Cure are a massive influence for us. Very hard to choose just one song by these.
Vulgarians – Lost Sanity Smiles
Huge tune! We share a practise room in Hull with these and Cannibal Animal, brilliant band and a must see live if you ever get the chance.
Cannibal Animal – I Feel Alive
Another Hull local. One of our favourite live bands, ace on record too, definitely another must see. NMS!
Joy Division – New Dawn Fades
Up there as one of our biggest influences, such dark song, but truly faultless!
Preoccupations – Death
They are a really exciting band. This song especially, we love how much it changes and builds throughout and has a very interesting structure. These have been a huge influence on our writing lately.
