There seems to be a resurgence lately of danceable post punk, and we're here for it. The latest is Leeds is Treeboy & Arc. Their latest single, "Logistical Nightmare," is a rant about social media that is going to make you want to groove. It's a high energy song with vicious vocals that could be from any time in the past forty years. While "Logistical Nightmare" is quite dance friendly, it's not a full on dance song. There is too much of a punk edge to be fully a dance song even if it is a blast to listen to.
In a press release, vocalist James Kay says of the new song:
"Logistical Nightmare is about how infuriating it can be to watch people navigate social media. Whether it’s a painful infographic telling you how to drink water on a hot day or a re-shared article by someone who definitely didn't read it.
"Social media can be a great tool for people at times, but more often than not I feel the cons outweigh the pros. I guess writing a 3 minute song about it all probably only made me hate it even more…"
