Premiere: Buñuel unleash sweet, dangerous and crazy new single “Crack Shot”
They are unforgiving, merciless, beautiful and most definitely not for the faint of heart. Buñuel‘s sound is like a difficult situation made tremendously worse by an unwillingness to compromise and an inability to play nice. Named after a famed Spanish filmaker and formed by the Italian trio of guitarist Xabier Iriondo (Afterhours), bassist Andrea Lombardini and drummer Francesco Valente (Il Teatro Degli Orrori, Snare Drum Exorcism, and Lume), as well as vocalist Eugene S. Robinson (Oxbow), Buñuel is a near-supergroup of global significance that produces an unpredictable amalgam of angular rhythms, drum salvos, blitzkrieg guitars and vocals that sound more like threats than promises. It is post-punk, proto-heavy and avant-garde noise, all mixed up and blended together in on dissonant and chaotic package.
After the initial announcement of Killers Like Us, the quartet’s upcoming third record and the last part of a trilogy, which saw them unveil a brilliant and disquieting first single, Buñuel now unleash another unpredictable track, entitled “Crack Shot”. Sweet, dangerous and crazy, “Crack Shot” features the gorgeously melodic vocals of Kasia Robinson (Maneki Nekro), and is sure to serve as another killer addition to the canon of good music for bad people, just like the record it belongs to. You can listen to “Crack Shot” below this article. About this new single, frontman Eugene S. Robinson comments, “Crack Shot gives me what has now become a BUÑUEL staple and is reminiscent of other famous duos — Sonny and Cher, the White Stripes, Steve and Eydie, Mickey and Sylvia — in that I get to sing with my wife, Kasia Robinson from Maneki Nekro. On the first two records, and I think it just happened by accident, we argued about something totally unrelated RIGHT before we recorded…making it a weird sort of compelling relationship journal. Pleased to report that this one was recorded without an argument.”
Killers Like Us will be released on February 18th via Profound Lore and La Tempesta International. Physical and digital pre-orders are now available here.
