Impulsive movements and shouts encapsulate Brooklyn band, Public Circuit, as if they are chasing you down and demanding you take part in their religious performance. "Caustic Cross", the synthesizer-fueled tale of power, death, and rebirth, leads the way as the band's lead single off their debut album, "Lamb".
Marrying the late 70's minimal synth-punk ethos of Nervous Gender and Units with the new wave romanticism of New Order and Depeche Mode, Public Circuit carves their niche in the bedrock foundation that minimal synth was built upon.
Sharp like a blade, the new wave opus cleverly intertwines harrowing synths and haunting pseudo-religious symbolism, invoking imagery that questions the consequences of blind adherence, and pleading the listener join in on a holy quest for the beyond.
A seething exhibition of synth magic, striking beats, and raw-edged delivery from New York City, Public Circuit is the analog brainchild of Ethan Biamont. With the inclusion of members, Sean Holloway and Nelson Fisher, the band's live performances culminate an intensity in the surrounding air, as their determination to lead an inquisition upon electronic music grows.
