Australian post-punkers Total Control have released a new single off their upcoming album Typical System and it's a heavy pop-synth song that feels retro in all the right ways. "Glass" expands through deep-cutting percussion and an expansive melody while lead singer Dan Stewart chants through some pretty anxious-sounding lyricism.
According to a recent interview with Pitchfork, Total Control have no plans to tour the album due to mixed emotions about it between band members. While not supporting the album with live performances may seem like a death sentence, the boys don't believe it's the end and haven't yet stopped sharing their music.
You can stream "Glass" below until the album drops July 24. Preorder the Typical System LP via Iron Lung Records.
