First Listen: VATS – Melting Culture

VATS_ggrForetelling appliance forests of the future, Seattle post-punk trio VATS approach Philip K. Dick territory on new single, “Melting Culture.”

Amidst squalls of feedback and neck-jostling lyrics, “Melting Culture” is an accelerated cohort-based program to ween one off of today’s mind-debilitating technology. Adhering to an analog tradition, VATS will release its debut LP, Green Glass Room, on vinyl and cassette on 1 July.
