Song of the Day | Plattenbau | Sleep/ Paralysis

– By The Violet Wave Staff –

If Post punk, noise, and surf rock melded together like a weird, highly engaging creature, you’ll get Plattenbau’s “Sleep/ Paralysis.”

Heavy bass and dark vocal undertones fill up the minutes of “Sleep/ Paralysis” by Plattenbau from Berlin. It’s only right that the video is kind of creepy, like a dream that’s crossed between an Aphex Twin video and an episode of Black Mirror. The song sounds edgy, grimy, and we love the rawness of it. It’s not so often that we get post punk submissions and this truly got us excited and stomping.

We can’t help but (sort of) remember Fugazi in the bass chords, but that’s always a good thing, right?
