“Space Punk” EP
By Leslie Snyder
A storm is brewing in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania from an unsigned modern garage rock/new wave punk quartet called Audio Kings of the Third World. This ominous quartet released their latest EP “Space Punk” on January 3, 2014 featuring five “brooding” tracks about the possibility of the world coming to an end in a very dark and dramatic way. Audio Kings of the Third World sound similar to Iggy Pop and The Cure with their “moaning” vocals and “gloomy” lyrics that will send chills up one’s spine.
The stormy adventure begins with the first track “Sky Was Red.” This track features “robotic” vocals and a harsh “galactic” new wave sound, along with “gritty” garage rock melodies. This track is a dark tale about a man waking up in the morning and thinking that the world was literally over because the sky was an ominous color. Meanwhile, the stormy adventure continues with the third track “8 Bit Man.” This track features “groaning” vocals and “gloomy“, but “fluttering” garage rock melodies. This track is an angry tale about a man who wants to become a huge robot in order to make people do things his way. The angry man is tired of being bullied by other people who are around him.
Finally, the stormy adventure ends with the fifth track “Camera.” This track features “moaning” vocals and “thunderous” garage rock melodies. This track is a frightening tale about a person who is constantly being stalked by an unwanted observer. This person is feeling restless and extremely uncomfortable.
Audio Kings of the Third World are a great unsigned modern garage rock/new wave punk quartet who sings songs about the world’s possible dramatic demise with dark lyrics and “brooding” garage rock melodies. The quartet’s latest EP “Space Punk” reminds people to be alert because one never knows who, or what is “lurking” around this planet.
