Maybe named after the Shellac song, maybe not, Manchester three piece Gary, Indiana have delivered this fantastic dystopian groove that is like a 21st century take on the wonderful World Domination Enterprises.
We love it here at LTW…
We wanted ‘Nike of Samothrace’ to be like a blunt instrument, both lyrically and musically. It’s purely brute force, gouging away with all dials turned up full, including the gutteral bass line, which was inspired by Thomas Bangalter’s score for Irreversible and Hans Zimmer’s score for Blade Runner 2049. We’re very much driven by rhythm and movement and also wanted to experiment with a Liquid Liquid style percussive breakdown, we love when genres and dynamics are smashed together in an untidy way… we love to butcher things.”
