AUTOBAHN + GRIM DISCO + SHALLOWS
Following the release of two self-titled EPs over the past 12 months, Autobahn announce details of debut album, Dissemble, out on 21st August 2014 via Tough Love.
Autobahn first came to the attention of Tough Love via a local support slot with Tampa romantics, Merchandise, and reached the wider world with the release of two now sold out 12”s. Those first recordings suggested a classic modern punk band with a penchant for death and glamour, and an impatience to be heard. Time and touring has afforded them the ability to shift gear significantly, and the renewed ambition of Dissemble stands as testament to that.
The band were immediately a thrilling live force, but on this album they’re wider, more urgent when they want to be, more thoughtful when required. Dissemble is an appropriate title (meaning to conceal one’s true motives), because there’s something canny at work here. The surface suggests despair, but scratch deeper and the lyrics display a lightness of touch that skewers the over-earnest and overly-serious.
