Dearthworms - "Strike Low"

Sheffield based rock band Deathworms are described as both "experimental post-punk" and "wonk-rock," and you can find out what that means when you listen to their latest single. "Strike Low" isn't quite as experimental as experimental post-punk might lead you to believe. It's more like a bizarro and darker sounding version of Yard Act. Dearthworms have a jagged and abrasive sound, although it does sound like they're trying (kind of) to make it sound more palatable. As the song goes on, it just kind of plows through you. It's not exactly out of control, but pretty close to it.

Dearthworms say of their new video:

“We felt like the best way to present our horniest song was with chaotic live footage and abstract violence. We cannot confirm who or what was under the spade.”

You can watch the video for "Strike Low" below. Sapsucker is due out July 26 on Redundant Span Records, and is available for pre-order here. For more on Dearthworms, check out the band on Instagram.
