Having already received support from Clash, BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson and M Magazine, Glaswegian five-piece Acrylic return with another melodic indie anthem ‘Post Punk For The Abyss’ bursting with jangling guitars and well-crafted vocals.

When asked about the inspiration behind the track, Acrylic’s lead vocalist Andreas stated “Post Punk For The Abyss was born out of a playlist of post-punk revival songs made for me by a friend, Joe, who features on the cover artwork for the single. I was quite down at the time and he thought it would cheer me up. The lyrics reference various songs and artists from the playlist; Iceage, Ought, New Order. It’s an homage to them and a toast to feeling good again”.

Glasgow’s Acrylic prepare to kick start 2019 with the release of their infectious new single ‘I’ve Got Too Many Friends’, which came out 11th January 2019.

The single is a soaring slice of indie rock from the offset, filled with jangling hooks, sweeping guitars and effortless harmonies throughout. Frontman Andreas Chrsitodoulidis’ rich, baritone vocal feels instantly reminiscent of the likes of The National’s Matthew Berninger, giving the track an undeniably defiant and endearing sound. Talking about the single, Andreas elaborates “’I’ve Got Too Many Friends’ is about feeling as though you’ve found yourself in an ideal situation, with all the pieces falling together, and knowing that you’re still going to mess it up. It’s about a rift developing in a relationship and explores the naive idea that sex will resolve your issues, even though it will, in fact, be a colourless and sad affair and will most likely send you straight to the abyss.
