Politically conscious indierock sounds like a contradiction nowadays while many of the now idolized early postpunk bands like Gang Of Four themselves were far from being apolitical. All these nameless and faceless the-bands are the perfect example for what is happening when you copy a style without its content. You end in insignificance.
Luckily there is still exceptions and one of these exceptions is Iskra from Hamburg. Singer Flicke is not only a dervish on stage but she got also a lot to tell about the poststructuralist bullshit we call world and about how to stay human here. Her passionate voice fits perfectly with the indie disco compatible songwriting. Energetic drumming, straight basslines and over all two great guitars with a fine sense for melodies and drive.
Track two on side b is a remix by soviet dance duo Juri Gagarin that is knarzy as fuck and dry as a bone. All in all four super tracks that make along with the beautiful artwork the best 7” in months in my eyes and ears.
