Moody atmospheric punks, Psychic Teens, just shared a single off their soon-to-be-released record HEX, and it’s some deep, dark stuff. Single, “SICKO,” is an echoey, slowed-building power track that bluntly calls out a narcissistic society.

The band’s gothy, noise-filled shoegaze is matched with the monotone yet biting lyrics: “No one cares about anything other than themselves / I see it everyday, it makes me want to end it all.”  Continuing on the narrative of the disgusted observer, the lines follow: “But I must go on / just to get my sick amusement / watching culture crash and burn.”

Catch Psychic Teens when they take over Boot and Saddle for their record release show on May 5th, alongside Tiny Vices and Dulls. Find more info on the 21+ show here at the XPN Concert Calendar, and jam to “SICKO” below.
