The Suicide Of Western Culture are a duo from Spain who released their first album in 2010 to much critical acclaim in their own country and since then they have been travelling half the world playing their own unique electro infused post rock themed music, yes its dance music, but it’s good dance music, and that really does make all the difference.
Now with a band called The Suicide Of western Culture and a song called ‘Love Your Friends, Hate Politicians’ I was expecting something more along the lines of the angst ridden punk of the 80’s but what I got instead was something completely different. What I got was a euphoric celebration of friendship and hope filled with slick trippy electro beets overlaying some really great drumming rhythms. The video is cool as well with computer generated heads, spinning yellow prisms, tripped out graphics oh and a couple of funky monk’s beat-boxing, what more could you want?
