out of stock

a record that’s almost obsessively melodic; in many ways, this references the naive energy of ‘Generation Terrorists’ and the orchestral sweep of ‘Everything Must Go’.

Say the band – “The main themes of ‘Resistance Is Futile’ are memory and loss – forgotten history – confused reality and art as a hiding place and inspiration. After delay and difficulties, the record has come together really quickly over the last few months, there has been a surge of creativity and old school hard work.” “the south wales terriers’ thirteenth album comes laden with melody and dread, bark and bite […] beneath the surface sheen, ‘resistance is futile’ is a complex, multi-layered work” 4/5 – mojo.
