Newcastle-based electronic duo Warm Digits have signed to Memphis Industries, and alongside the announcement of their new label home, today we’re premiering their latest single “End Times.” Featuring vocals by Peter Brewis of Field Music, “End Times” is an endlessly replayable disco snapper completely sufficient to tide over fans until the band releases their newest album later this year. Nervy and noodling, the song jitters infectiously over four-and-a-half minutes of krautrock-indebted dance-punk. Brewis’ vocals fly from side to side, up and down, and punch at all the right pressure-points. “The distance of consequence!” he wails apocalyptically, holding out that last note over the horizon of splattering synthesizers. “When we first started looking for vocalists, long-time collaborators Field Music were a natural fit, having been DIY kindred spirits in the North East for as long as Warm Digits have existed,” the band said of working with Brewis. The pairing is both natural and highly effective. Listen below.
Warm Digits will release their as-yet-unannounced second studio album sometime this year.
