Today, France’s Unschooling share third and final single ‘Excommunicated’, from debut album New World Artifacts out 6th October 2023 via Bad Vibrations (pre-order here). It includes previous singles ‘Brand New Storm’, and ‘Ribbon Road’.

‘Excommunicated’ is an unusually long track that concludes side A of the album. Lead vocalist and guitarist adds Vincent Fevrier, “This quasi-religious piece is interspersed with a very raw and bruitist part. The end drone seems to plunge us directly into darkness until a clearing spreads and snaps us out of torpor.” 

A 5-piece from France, they emerged with their self-released Defensive Designs cassette in 2019 which made a splash in the French indie scene. 2021’s follow-up Random Acts of Total Control EP solidified their reputation further afield and established them as one of the most exciting new acts.

New World Artifacts a collection of lo-fi post-punk clocking in at 30 minutes, underscored with subtle pop melodies and structures but never far away from bouts of anarchic no-wave dissonance.  For all that it might be chaotic and experimentally-grounded, it’s above all else a fun and entertaining listen that never takes itself too seriously. It’s for this reason that the band have already been heralded as one of the most exciting up-and-comers in the new school of post-punk revivalists, playing to busy crowds and festival fields across the continent.

 New World Artifacts might just mark them out as the best in class. 

The band will set off on a UK headline tour this October/November, with tickets on-sale now here.
