Hit of the week: HMLTD ‘The West Is Dead’

HMLTD have shared a politically charged new single right this moment, ‘The West Is Dead’.  The London five-piece will launch their debut album, ‘West of Eden’ on February 7 by way of impartial label Fortunate Quantity.

The expansive, labyrinthine debut has been several years in the making; a daring collection of songs created to incite conversation about proposed new visions of masculinity, the decadence of western capitalism and the violence of insecurity and repression. Across its 15 tracks, the band’s artistic vision is realised in full technicolour, with all shades of their sonic palette used to create an album that is equal parts lush and abrasive.
