submeet: Capsule Hotel

Having shared stages with bands like Preoccupations, Havah, Be Forest, and Soviet Soviet, receiving praise for their live presence, upcoming Italian shoegazers, submeet, have just released their debut album, Terminal, through Lady Sometimes Records.

Dwelling on the grittier and noisier side of shoegaze, with large doses of post punk and noise rock blended in their sound, submeet have already earned comparisons to acts like A Place To Bury Strangers and Preoccupations,  by virtue of their excellent implementation of fuzz, raucousness and reverberation to their dark aesthetics, and their enamoring dystopian themes.

On Capsule Hotel, a paradigm of the illusory and ghostly mood that the band achieve throughout the whole record, they cite influence from the nightmarish brilliance of David Cronenberg, and sound utterly maniacal while giving full substance to their vision.

As the band put it in their own words: "The song tells about the rejection of the alienating condition submitted by a post-industrial society in which we do not recognize ourselves anymore, but of which we speak the same language made of metallic, distorted and deafening noises. Death of the man as death of conscience, intellect, authenticity and freedom of thought."
