Last month we brought you the "abrasively clean minimalist punk" of Landowner with their single, "Witch Museum." This month they are back with a new single with a completely different sound. "Beyond the Darkened Library" is a more electronic song. It still has a jerky post-punk feel, but the noisy indie rock sound is virtually gone. This new song is more hypnotic due to how repetitive the music is. There's some ties to an eight bit video game, but in a punk way?
You can listen to "Beyond the Darkened Library" below. Escape the Compound is due out July 21 on Born Yesterday Records, and is available for pre-order here. For more on Landowner, check out the band on Instagram and Facebook.
