The latest song from Tunic has been kicking around for a while. According to their press release, "Invalid" has gone through three different versions and survived three band line ups. On its current version, it's a blistering art punk track. It sounds like it would have been right at home with Dischord in the early 90's, but with some Nirvana In Utero era thrash. It's not a fully pleasant listen, but Tunic isn't meant for that. Of course, if Dischord meets late era Nirvana sounds like your cup of tea, "Invalid" is going to be downright thrilling to you.
Tunic explains the meaning behind their new song: "Our new track, 'Invalid,' addresses the constant feeling of judgement from your peers, parents, and more importantly yourself. There is a guilt you feel for allowing your adolescent dreams to run your adult life."
