Chicago’s noise/math-rock trio Lower Automation have just shared a music video for a song from their new self-titled debut album released earlier this month on Zegema Beach Records.
Entirely captured on a VHS camera, this new video for Combover was directed by Matt Gans and is now playing at Decibel Magazine, who commented «There are many reasons Chicago’s Lower Automation deserve praise. Definitely towards the top of that list is their building of a wheel in which Botch, Wire, DEVO, KEN Mode, Nation of Ulysses, At The Drive-In and the Dillinger Escape Plan comprise the spokes before it gets punctured by a spike strip built by The Locust. Lower Automation describe themselves as, «Noise-adjacent mathpunk from Illinois».
The follow-up to the band’s 2018 critically acclaimed second EP Shoebox Companion features 10 new tracks that show Lower Automation constantly pushing the envelope by offering an explosive, frenetic and inventive concoction of mathcore, noise-rock, metal and punk.
