HEARTWORMS – ” Retributions Of An Awful Life “

Posted: January 19, 2023 in MUSIC

After her visceral debut single for Speedy Wunderground, “Consistent Dedication,”  Heartworms (Aka Jojo Orme) returns with another incredible slice of gothic-tinged dystopian post/punk/rock. 

“Retributions Of An Awful Life” is magnificent, the sort of music that stops you in your tracks –   full of throbbing menace, dark poetry angular guitars and propulsive rhythms that is light years away from the vile ghastly flaccid morass of cowflop that indie music has become.  This is genuinely exciting original music from an artist who could well take 2023 by storm. The track is from her debut EP “A Comforting Notion”

Released on 24th March via Speedy Wunderground , The track arrives with an equally mesmeric video which Heartworms describes thus “The song itself lyrically is deeply unsettling, I wanted it to come alive in action. I had an idea of being kitted up in full militaria of no specific regiments, in black and white, putting my body through cold water and wet mud. This was stepping outside my comfort zone because I’m not a skilled swimmer; deep water frightens me immensely, especially when cold and in full military gear.”
