Tropical Fu*k Storm Share New Single/Video, “Bumma Sanger”

Australia’s Tropical Fuck Storm present a new single/video, “Bumma Sanger,” from their forthcoming album, Deep States, out next Friday, August 20th on Joyful Noise. “Bumma Sanger” is in the same strange vein as previously released tracks “G.A.F.F.” and “New Romeo Agent.” “Bumma Sanger” is anxious and alien, fervent with piercing guitar and murky percussion. Gareth Liddiard straightforwardly sings about the pandemic: “God gave the germs their dominion // you gotta wonder what he was thinking // but that is that  // this was supposed to be a summer banger // but it’s just another bumma sanger // how you going with the cabin fever?” (For reference, “sanger” is Australian slang for “sandwich”). 

Gareth elaborates: “You can’t go anywhere or do anything during a lockdown but I was watching TV during a seance with Winston Churchill and an advert made by an interstellar travel agency came on offering an affordable holiday to a tropical beachside resort on a planet in a different galaxy.”

Deep States mines new cultural terrains and digs into the subjective state of contemporary panic. Over the last five years, you didn’t have to be conspiratorial to see the conspiracies everywhere you turned; and Gareth LiddiardFiona KitschinErica Dunn, and Lauren Hammel, know how to make friends with the strange. The band chronicles weird adventures in statecraft and surveillance, ponders the global infatuation with resurgent fascisms. Tropical Fuck Storm shine an incandescent light on a world in which corporate media, bad-faith leaders, and charismatics of all stripes lose the ability to recognize their own deceptiveness.
