Subterranean Street Society
You may recognize their sound from the Netflix original 'Ragnarok', under which the single "Only Your Sins Know" was placed, or you might have seen them live, chances are high. Subterranean Street Society doesn’t beat around the bush, the Danish-Dutch alternative rock band brings raw rock with a poetic edge and has seen most of the world through their music. The trio incorporates different genres into their
songs and sound, with clear influences taken from indie, folk, grunge and rock. In 2023 they leave their melancholic sound behind and storm on with strong protest songs that you simply cannot ignore. On 'God Couldn't Save The Queen', singer Louis wonders why we still put royal families on a pedestal, and single 'Focus On The Melody' is a raging garage rock track about the dying attention span of modern society. That sets the tone for album 'BLEEP', which is coming on the 8th of March 2024.
Their musical flavour comes from, among others, The Black Keys, The Dandy Warhols, Nirvana and a touch of Big Thief. Expect dirty riffs, sleazy swamp and uptempo vocal rants. Studio album 'BLEEP' is a new exciting chapter for this versatile trio and will see the light of day on the 8th of March 2024. 'BLEEP' was born from a post-covid urge to perform live again. While the band's previous albums were created during an extensive process, this album was developed in just under a year. The songs were written with the entire band to focus on the energy of the ensemble.
The album was recorded live on the Tascam 388, an 8-track DIY tape recorder from the late '80s. The result is an uptempo folk-grunge album full of urgency. In contrast to previously released albums, the lyrics on 'BLEEP' are less personal and are more about current themes. The band asks themselves and their fans questions about smartphones, freedom of expression, war and polarisation, with the main
question: “Is society the real cult?”
Subterranean Street Society started releasing music in 2017 and has played shows in the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, England, Italy, Russia and New Zealand in recent years. You can hear the single 'Only Your Sins' in the Netflix series Ragnarok and on Dutch TV they were seen at 'The Ballroom' with Jan
Douwe Kroeske, where they presented their concept album 'Twelve Steps'.
