Premiere: Bruce Roach – Queen Of The Universe

Fresh off a collab on Pulsum’s latest for Miley Serious’ 99cts Rcrds, Bruce Roach returns to land his debut solo iteration on Melbourne via Berlin-based Potatoheadz Records. Presented as a “navigation through the comedy/tragedy of existence, tapping into the mundane, the chaos and total devastation“, the album engineers a mix of rough-hewn tools, twisted experiments and embryonic sketches that pack a punch, putting on a fine display of “snide, sarcastic and neurotic” floor weaponry.

Lifted from that hefty package of rust-gnawed basement churners and evil-minded acid diversions on a psy-op tip, our pick ‘Queen Of The Universe‘ enters the melee all bass blazing and lo-fi engines roaring. Short and dense as gets, clocking at just over two minutes, this one’s primed for fearless dungeon workouts and off-limits boogie down, better appreciated all lights turned off in the midst of a full on sweaty, moshing herd. The kind of post-Orwellian, riot-inducing material your corporate boss won’t enjoy hearing blasted through the office systems. NSFW.

Gut is out now via Potatoheadz Records, pre-order a copy from Bandcamp.
