Mush - "Existential Dread"

Leeds based art punks Mush have released a single off their upcoming album. "Existential Dread" is this bizarre yet poppy and groovy freak out. The groove isn't quite post punk. Instead there's this off kilter 60's style feel while still being an almost DEVO goes indie rock sound. 

Singer Dan Hyndman explains "Existential Dread": “I wrote the song to keep myself amused while on a severe hangover, tried to frame the bleak thoughts in an amusing way. We always affectionately referred to it as the Beatles/Nirvana song. First riff sounds like Beatles and then the second riff sounds bit like Nirvana. We are unofficially Yorkshire’s most anxious band so seems apt to have a song about existential dread.” 

You can listen to "Existential Dread" below. 3D Routine, the debut album from Mush, will be out February 14 on Memphis Industries. You can pre-order a copy here. For more on Mush, check them out on Facebook and Twitter. Current tour dates are below the song.
