Protomartyr – “I Forgive You”


Detroit based post-punk band Protomartyr have just released a driving new single you can dance to, “I Forgive You” (which can be listened to below via SoundCloud) which will be on their upcoming album “The Agent Intellect” which will be out on October 9th via Hardly Art Records.

I was honestly surprised to find out that these guys are from Detroit rather than the UK. A lot of their sound is very reminiscent of post-punk bands like U2 (in their early days). It has a rhythm you can really get up and grooving to and keeps that sense of punk spirit alive through every chord, beat, and lyric. Noisey further describes the track saying:

There are few tracks on The Agent Intellect that burn with a punk fire quite like “I Forgive You.” The latest track from the forthcoming LP by Protomartyr comes right out of the gate like a bucking bronco, flailing around with discordant riffs and dancable post-punk rhythms before settling into a fantastic hummable melody. It’s one of the highlights of an already stellar LP

I would definitely recommend looking further into Protomartyr’s back catalog. You’ll find plenty of great treasures to rock to.
