Track Of The Day 18/9 – People Club


People Club are based in Berlin, but the five-piece actually hail from both sides of the Atlantic, and both hemispheres.

An international collective – Australia, USA, UK, and New Zealand – the band found focus in Berlin, in its tumult of political and artistic rebellion.

Matching this to some superb songwriting, their alt-pop guitar jams pick apart patriarchal themes and the regressive nature of 21st century hyper-capitalism.

New EP 'Kil Scott' lands on November 15th, and it will be accompanied by a flurry of live action from the five-piece.

New single 'Perfume' leads the way, a slinky 80s leaning jammer that recalls everyone from Alvvays' perfect indie pop through to TOPS melancholic jammers.

Blessed with that neat, tropical-tinged chorus, it's a blast of sunshine that actually has its roots in childhood trauma.

People Club explain…

"The initial idea for this song was brought in by our guitarist Saxon, who, like so many, struggled to cope with the divorce of his parents during his childhood. ‘Perfume’ is a deeply personal contemplation of these experiences, told from the perspective of an anguished lover seeking affection from her partner. Despite her efforts, she receives no love but remains dedicated, but heartbroken forever."

Tune in now.
