Flavorpill has singled out Protomartyr as one of it’s “15 of the Choicest Picks from CMJ Music Marathon:”
‘Dark, brooding, and angular” are three words that get used a lot (maybe too much) to describe much of what’s been happening in punk over the last several years, but Detroit’s Protomartyr managed to break away from the pack as one of the best bands to be constantly compared to Joy Division in the recent past.”
Left Field (Downstairs), Wed, October 22, 9:00 PM > 9:45 PM & Bowery Electric, Thu, October 23, 1:40 PM > 2:10 PM
The dark pop quartet makes the most of their sonic resources to create a full, heavy dreamscape cut with glittering synth and careening guitar. The band (a pet project of frontman Julian Anderson-a Detroiter now based in Brooklyn) has been recognized as a force to keep an eye on both by local and international tastemakers.
