‘Shock‘ is the latest track from Brooklyn based post-punk band Hypoluxo and features Kristina Moore of Triathlon! The track is centred around hypnotic, jaunty riffs and expressive vocals. However, the ambient, bassier parts of ‘Shock’ soften the tracks angular side with nimble, jangly melodies.
Speaking of the track, Hypoluxo have said: “I began writing ‘Shock’ when I traveled to Sulphur, Louisiana for my cousin’s funeral. I was mulling over the different facets of loss and how we cope with it, individually and as a community. The song was finished after I got back to Brooklyn and right around when Covid first hit here. It really came together when the eviction crisis began and we were all trying to figure out how to live with ourselves, and the immensity of the death and loss all around us. ‘Shock’, in the end, is about not being able to escape the things that scare you the most.”
