The second album from Batteries, the solo project from Sci-Fi Steven of Bis, is due out in August and today we’re bringing you the visceral video for latest track Pigs.
Glasgow’s Batteries, the artist otherwise known as Sci-Fi Steven from battle-scarred Indie heroes bis, return with the boundary-stretching “Pigs”.
An unhinged, visceral Synth-Punk modern nightmare that sucks the blood of of XTC and Devo and mutates into a metallic, pronky animal with no respect for time-signatures and rock tradition. It holds a vicious lyrical mirror on society where the tongue-in-cheek pessimism of the recent past has become the reality of the near-future.
One of the darkest moments of second album The Finishing Line, Steven still manages to find time for a melodic hook or two in amongst the wreckage.
See Batteries live (backed by all three Michael’s from We Are The Physics):
- 19 August – album launch at Stereo, Glasgow
