STARING PROBLEM: Self-titled: 7”

Illinois band Staring Problem play the type of post-punk that uses the bass as the lead instrument. Think Unknown Pleasures by Joy Division or early ‘80s Cure, but sped up a bit. Goth is back and it’s weird, because I work at an art school and now nineteen-year-old students dress like the women I was attracted to twenty years ago, when I realized that I wanted nothing to do with the preps. Three songs. Little bits of shoegaze and lo-fi pop for good measure.
