Special Interest - The Passion Of... LP
Special Interest return with their sophomore LP, a dual release from Night School (UK) and Thrilling Living (US), "The Passion Of..." combines elements of punk, glam rock and no wave pushed through a mangled filter of contemporary electronic forms. Special Interest present a precise and deranged vision of punk, an apocalyptic celebration, a step forward into a perverse and uncertain landscape.
Recorded throughout 2019 with engineer James Whitten, "The Passion Of..." finds the band with a fuller realization of their sound. While their debut album "Spiraling" documented a band discovering their purpose, "The Passion Of…" is both more chaotic and melodic, daring to finally live up to their notorious wall-of-sound live performances. Massive, juddering beats from an old Electribe sampler and distorted bass provide much of the rhythmic backbone.
It takes you on an odyssey, from celebrating the highs and lows of hedonism (Disco III), to dystopian anthems (All Tomorrow’s Carry) and disillusioned love songs (Street Pulse Beat). Ending in a powerful final decree (With Love) offering visions and desires for futures to come.
