Published May 14, 2015KEN Mode continue to wow with the previews behind their upcoming Success, having just unveiled a wiry, near-spoken word post hardcore musing on the modern world called "Management Control."
The track stomps along with a tribal groove, AmRep-approved bass damage and the spindly six-stringing of Jesse Matthewson. His rough-hewn cries, meanwhile, scratch up the track with all sorts of ponderings on "petty agendas," money issues, and more. "We live in a privileged world/Music for something we believe in," he delivers in a frustrated sprechgesang tone.
You'll find the Canadian noiserock combo's latest single down below, courtesy of Spin. Success achieves its goal of landing in retailers June 16 via New Damage Records/Season of Mist.
