Tropical Fuck Storm have shared their new video for “Bumma Sangar” taken from their upcoming album Deep States. What else can I tell you? I’m back from a trip and I’m kind of tired of this pandemic nonsense. I’m sure that sentiment will age well amongst some of the other idiocies that I’ve spouted. Regardless, check out the video and the PR release below.
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.”
