If Throbbing Gristle and Einstürzende Neubauten had a current day musical love child, it might just sound a bit like GRAVE GOODS. The band, based in Manchester, Dublin and Belfast, race out of the starting blocks with the kind of industrial art-rock that would sit well alongside their much feted predecessors, heavy on percussion and dry spoken word. Featuring current and former members of PINS, Girls Names and September Girls, new single Come is a strong sweetener for their upcoming debut album, TUESDAY. NOTHING EXISTS., set for release on 9th September via TULLE.

Singer Lois MacDonald says of the track, This is one of the first tracks we wrote, and for me the one that helped to cement the feel of the music we make. I wanted to use the guitar in a percussive way, and I wanted the track to feel stressful and furious. I felt frustrated at the time and had so much to express. I wanted the lyrics to reflect all this, and to come from the gut.  The best noise I could imagine for this is ‘Ugh’ which I use towards the end – it represents frustration, disgust and sex.
