KEXP Premiere: PUJOL - "Circles"
PUJOL’s “Circles,” is an addictive, fast-paced, unrelenting stream of dark, lo-fi, punk-power set on shredding every millimeter of your dopamine pathways. The song’s impetus is a discordant microphone screech and subdued murmuring, appealing to conventional punk music. But, PUJOL subverts the genre with a more upbeat, poppy melody, reminiscent of the Groovie Ghoulies or Three Oh Sees. The lyrics on the track, “Show me that your sacred heart’s the human kindness kind / Show me more than 3D printers drawing skulls and knives / Show me more than kleptocratic demagogue control / Show me that you ain’t a lizard, show you’ve got a soul,” beg for some enduring sign of human connection. Daze and all, “Circles,” is an altogether dynamic track, and PUJOL is an artist you should keep on your “To Listen” list.
You can snag KLUDGE in stores on May 20th, and look for the limited edition “Circles” 7″ on lizard green vinyl on Record Store Day 2014!
