We tend to bring you a lot of post-punk here at If It's Too Loud..., and lately it's been more of a modern sounding post-punk. It will be post-punk infused with pop, or shoegaze, or any other genre. Chicago's Lawn are bringing us just straightforward, pure, old school post-punk on their latest single, "Night Life." If this was any kind of hybrid sound it would be DEVO meets Gang Green, which is two separate post-punk sounds. It's the kind of song that has a sense of fun and celebration, but also a bit of a darker sonic edge to it.
Rui DeMagalhaes says of the band's new single:
"On an added note, he complained that Rundgren fired him for being a booze hound and an overall liability. He still seemed pretty resentful about losing the gig, but also played in a Rundgren cover band around the area. To be honest, I don’t know how truthful this man was, but I suppose it does not matter."
