Fans of Shit-boring, macho, square music beware. These Aussies are here to freak up your Saturday Night.” Q Magazine
Tropical Fuck Storm came looming onto the scene in 2018 with their intense and perfect debut album, A Laughing Death In Meatspace. The album is Gareth Liddiard at his most fierce as a songwriter, holding nothing back, which keeps in line with the uncontrollable noise-rock from the band. TFS deliver a fraught vision of algorithmic apocalypse.
Live, Tropical Fuck Storm are a force of nature, conjuring chaos at every blistering performance, with zero shits to give for corporate music hegemony. “Kneel down by the advertising, don’t you make a single false move” calls out the female chorus of Fiona Kitschin and Erica Dunn echoing the dismay of our time as we bear witness to the sinister seductions which social media surveillance has entangled us.
A Laughing Death in Meatspace doesn’t show us the way out of this situation, but it howls along with us as we peer into the maelstrom ahead.
TFS are heading back to Europe in November with their mind-melting new album Braindrops (out August 23).
