Melbourne's Total Control is Mikey Young (of Eddy Current Suppression Ring, among other projects) and Dan Stewart (of UV Race). "Flesh War" is the first release from their second album, Typical System, which will be released on June 20. Fans of the band, myself included, have been eagerly awaiting the album. Moving the perimeter of their music outside the punk orientation of some of their other projects, Total Control shapes a synth, post-punk and gloom sound that sounds pretty refreshing to my ears despite some echoes of the '80s. Check out "Flesh Wars" and mark your calendars.
Tpyical System will be released outside of Australia/New Zealand by Iron Lung Records on June 24, and self-released in Australia/New Zealand on June 20.
