Special Interest is definitely the most ‘2020’ band out there, with a sound like an iron clad fist. A fist waved in the face of complacency, fear and the bigotry of the American state. Alli Logout’s commanding presence helps to create a platform for non-white, non-cis musicians and artists and the fact that the group are from New Orleans only lends their agenda more credibility. Following a debut LP, the group have just released The Passion of… on Thrilling Living, and it’s even coming out in Europe on Night School. Over 11 tracks they throw punk, synth punk and every known avantgarde into the cement mixer and bulldozer their way over conservatism and xenophobia. How little the establishment looks in their wake.
