Ahead of their sixth full-length LP, Kali Corvette, set for a September 9 release, Netherlands are sharing their new track and video, “There’s a Glitch in Human Consciousness.” Check it out premiering right here at New Noise.
Lead singer, multi-instrumentalist, and all around creative Timo Ellis formed Netherlands in New York City back in 2010. The band have since shared the stage with Napalm Death, Melt Banana, Mutoid Man, Yob, Retox, Black Flag, Eyehategod, Flipper, Martin Rev, The Death Set, Moon Tooth, and Witch Mountain, and many others.
Complete with drummer David Keith and synth-bassist Kelsey Warren, Netherlands continually reject restraint and focus on a maximum impact with their sound. Their signature style blends psychedelic sludge rock with the iconic acid rock and punk of the ’70s, the grandeur of ’80s area rock, and the intensity of ’00s post-hardcore.
The new album features all these hallmarks of Ellis’ work, though it also veers into realms like electro-noise-rock, pushing the band’s unique genre of rock music to new heights.
Netherlands chat more about the new track:
“‘There’s a Glitch in Human Consciousness’ has a kind of lurching, synthpunk/post-punk, propulsive, aggressive vibe, and features the genius Greg Kubacki (Car Bomb) on clean psych-guitar gorgeousness… again with reasonably confrontational lyrics about modern humanity’s tragic inability to be able to morally reckon with the complexity of modern life, within our deeply delusional, embarrassingly arrogant, apocalypse-baiting techno industrial civilization.”
