AUTOBAHN – “Unhinged” (Stereogum Premiere)

AUTOBAHN hail from the Leeds scene that brought us Eagulls, and like that band, this one plays bruising post-punk with a fury few bands can muster. They’re tapping into that old pigfuck spirit similarly to wild out the way METZ does. “Unhinged,” an appropriately titled onslaught from the quintet’s second EP — the also-appropriately-titled 2. — rides a rapidly inclining riff that tends to carry my blood pressure upwards along with it. The feedback is swirling, the howls are guttural, and every beat hits like a Hulk smash. Listen below.

2. is out 7/7 on Tough Love. Pre-order it in physical and digital formats.
