The English alt-rock band The Poulsons appeared with the LP Rompa Stompa earlier in the month.

The Poulsons is band who over the just over three years since first featuring are consistently inconsistent with new material yet are always immediately recognisable by their soundtrack resonating of their surroundings with a furious temper searing across the room reflective of the realities of day to day life, always bruised sound levels giving the music a forestalled shadow that befalls the ears and their signature ending to each and every track which abruptly and seemingly randomly cuts midway through a bar.
The English distortion-rock project The Poulsons are due to imminently release the LP Metrophobia.
Within the past few hours ten tracks have surfaced, any of which would be a pleasure to feature but somehow the precisely three minute long – Utopia seemed very appropriate for its time precision, featuring the signature cliff-edge ending of all the tracks by The Poulsons.
For those who haven’t had an opportunity to catch any of the previous articles on the band over the past three years you have missed a musical treat. Able to record more loudly than most can manage they set the volume even louder as the music compresses within itself due to the sheer volume of sound. This is a band that is a Mastering nightmare as they break every rule an engineer will tell you is sacrosanct yet The Poulsons are able, time after time, to prove that rules are meant to be broken as they deploy over-compression and hurled up high bass to demonstrate their point.
Regardless of how how many decibels you think your sound-system can cope with – my advice – crank up the volume and enjoy the sounds of The Poulsons – in this instance the delightful Utopia as they evidence the illusion of the deeper the sound the louder it appears.
The Poulsons, an alt-rock band from England, released the LP Amplifon on the 3rd.
It is always a pleasure to come back to the band with their signature song endings and Amplifon (which is available on bandcamp) is well worth adding to the collection. The last of the nine tracks is Down.
The Poulsons from England were introduced at the end of last year.
From the eleven track track debut LP Fire ‘n’ Fear a new lyric video has been made available for the second track on the album – Motorman.
For those not familiar with the endings, no this isn’t a video that ends half-way through a song – it is what makes their style – end mid-bar if possible and part of the reason I enjoy them so much and recommend you spend time in the company of The Poulsons.
