Bench Press Release Video For 'Group Anxiety', Sign To Poison City


Australian post-punk quarter Bench Press have officially joined Melbourne's cult Poison City label, joining the likes of Batpiss, Cable Ties, TV Haze and Mere Women. The foursome currently have a debut LP in the works, and have drip-fed fans a video for their single 'Group Anxiety', which will have a hometown Melbourne launch show.

'Group Anxiety' chugs along, with vibrant bass tones, clean guitar sounds, and brash vocals, combined with a rhythmic groove that ties the track together. Lyrically the track centres around the simultaneous surrendering and enabling of anxieties through the dynamics of share-house living. This microcosm extends to the increasingly claustrophobic, rapidly-expanding experience of modern urban living. This is reflected in the busy imagery of the video.
