SIX Post Punk Bands You Need to Hear Right Now!

While searching out new music is already a huge part of our job, since we started Dark Waves Radio over at nofunradio.com we’ve really started to dive into the world of post punk and deathrock. If you’re a fan of these genres, make sure to tune in each month to the show to hear what we’re listening to and what we’ve found. But sometimes we have to share them with you ahead of time, so here are six bands we’re excited about right now!

ONE: HUMAN TETRIS 

Human Tetris hail from Moscow. As I write this sentence, the Tetris theme song is playing in my head. Human Tetris’ music is just as catchy but not annoying at all. You know when you hit play on a new band and from the first second you know you love it and want to hear everything they’ve made? That’s what happened to me when I listened to their 2018 release Memorabilia, and now I’m going down the rabbit hole of listening to everything they’ve made…see you on the other side.

TWO: MAGIC MIST

And now for another overseas band I can pine for – Magic Mist from Cardiff, UK, have a sound that perfectly matches their name. Their music has a foggy, supernatural feel that makes me think about wandering through 18th century graveyards.

THREE: ISOLATED YOUTH

Isolated Youth from Stockholm, Sweden have a stripped-down sound that brings to mind Spahn Ranch, which is an influence I’m not used to finding in a lot of the post punk I listen to. They’re bringing this nuanced sound into the post punk revival and it’s amazing.

FOUR: MISSING

There’s a chance I might get to see NOLA-based Missing live since at least I share a continent with them! I’m keeping an eye on this band because I love their classic dreamy approach to deathrock.

FIVE: BLOODLETTER

Australia always brings the good shit, and as soon as I saw the cover for Bloodletter’s Protection EP I knew I was going to love it. I was right. This is post punk that makes me feel powerful.

SIX: H.GRIMACE

I honestly don’t know how to describe H.Grimace’s music – part post-punk, part garage rock, part grunge, part riot grrl. Everything comes together to make this music addictive. They’re based in London, UK. I need to save up for a world tour.
