With a much darker presence than much of their material; Pulse has an industrial wrecking-ball temper to it which swings across the room creating a shadowy blackness that reflects upon the continual havoc which has been sown by wealthy oligarchs and London-centric bureaucrats upon their home town of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, in the North East of England, as it contemplates a local venue that will be known by many national and international touring bands – The Cluny, which, as a building began life as a Cotton Mill.

Pulse is a track that can equally be transposed, by you as a music fan to your own local venue that ‘matters’, where ever you are in the world, whilst property developers, like vultures, lurk awaiting for planning permission to move in and destroy gathering spaces for the non-conformists to enjoy life and get away from the grind-stone, even if only fleetingly, to resurface as a Corporate Headquarters or unaffordable housing stock.

Which similarly minds me of a nearby local authority who evicted a group of tenants, making many homeless, so they could turn the properties over to a property developer to rebuild spaces as ‘homeless accommodation’ all for a short term cashflow, whilst in the longer term being rented back by the same local authority at far higher cost than the cash injection, such is the dystopian reality of socio-capitalism.
