An eerie, anxiety-ridden track for the modern age, from emerging Belfast band The Flims.
The Flims are a lo-fi indie/alternative duo from Belfast, who cite the likes of Radiohead, The Cure, Real Estate and Arcade Fire as their influences.
Having reformed from being a three-piece just over a year ago, they've been writing and recording intensely these last few months, releasing several singles to date.
Their latest single, 'Factory_Reset', is a Kafkaesque look at a system that exploits workers, examining those who benefit from it, and those who suffer under it. A densely layered track, it features other-worldy piano riffs, choppy atmospheric guitars and cold, clockwork-like sampled drumbeats.
Speaking about the track, the band say: "'Factory_Reset' is about greed and corruption on many levels - how generations of people continue to damage and take advantage of the world and the people in it for their own profit, ignoring all warning signs and not caring for the quality of life of future generations."
In the last couple of months, The Flims have headlined gigs in venues throughout Belfast, including McHugh's Bar, Voodoo and The Pavilion. There next gig sees them perform at the Atlantic Bar Portrush on May 3, alongside Kieron O'Grady, Villa in France and Ruby O'Neill. For more details about the band, check them out here
