SONG OF THE DAY The Comet Is Coming – Start Running

“The Comet Is Coming, signalling an end to life as we know it, heralding the dawn of a new age. In the inevitable physical destruction of the planet, a space is created where all notions of political, social and economic hierarchy will be at once obliterated and transcended…”

Today’s little beauty came up in an old playlist earlier and I realised it’s been a while since I’ve given this band a listen!!

In 2017 London’s Comet Is Coming released an EP called Death to the Planet. Exploring the realms of alternative futures, the band contemplates issues of environmental and political collapse, putting into sound their interpretation of of our possible demise. Providing an outlet for this chaos, comes a sonic experience that is dark, experimental and exploratory! They occupy a world of their own!

Issued on the Leaf label for Record Store Day, Death To The Planet was described as “the sound of total planetary destruction, produced with laser-guided accuracy and aimed directly at the dancefloor..”

Start Running opens the EP, providing over six minutes of heavy-duty beats and cosmic darkness. It’s not light listening by any means, but its wonderfully intense and I guess if you had to go, and the end sounded like this, that would at least be something to soften the blow, eh!! Check it out above and listen/purchase the rest of the EP, here.
