Protomartyr -- Relatives In Descent

“My Children” by Protomartyr

As Protomartyr put the finishing touches on their upcoming album Relatives in Descent, due out September 29, the Detroit post-punk band whet fans’ appetites with a second excellent single called “My Children” (the first was “A Private Understanding”).

“My Children” has a tense, haunting feel with incoherent murmurs and chants in lieu of traditional vocal work. What brings the song to life is its explosive guitar lines, which bounce all the way through. Listen below.
