NEWS: Destrends Release New EP ‘Wasteland’

May 5, 2020

Melbourne-based post-punks DESTRENDS have a remarkable way of driving their gritty hooks straight through the core of their listeners.

After recently releasing two stand-out singles ‘Medication’ and ‘Missing People’ DESTRENDS have released their new EP Wasteland, containing the two aforementioned singles and two new cuts ‘Wasteland’ and ‘Peaches’.

Wasteland is a continuation of DESTRENDS propensity to capture the zeitgeist in a powerful yet accessible sonic tapestry.

ABOUT DESTRENDS:
DESTRENDS are a Melbourne based post-punk collective who produce an angular, bass-driven sound and have built a reputation as a distinctly theatrical live outfit. With a sound influenced by early 80’s new wave, Destrends produce a confident mix of gloomy goth-laden punk with some real Aussie grit.

DESTRENDS 2017 EP Lousy Lover solidified the group as a menace to behold, scoring support slots with Aussie favourites King Gizzard & the Lizard WizardSpiderbait, & Hoodoo Gurus.

Destrends returned in late 2019 with a new single Medication’. It warned of a post-apocalyptic dystopia.  The track speaks of our leader’s apathy towards issues that affect the next generation, with a focus on climate change. In a political climate where the individual feels increasingly powerless, hope begins to fade as we surrender to an inevitable fate.

The second single ‘Missing People‘, is defined by the well-honed thickness of a three-piece guitar-driven band, singer Matt Savage conjures an anecdote of subtle dissonance and hope in equal measure.
