Joy Division – Transmission

Do you remember South England’s duo Twin Graves we’ve recently introduced you to? Good, because today we need to come back again to the UK to get acquainted with another post-punk band with a bright future ahead: Joy Division. When I casually bumped into them on Soundcloud, I was stunned by their attitude: they’ve got everything from Soviet Soviet’s killer basslines and Interpol gloomy vocals to the general black & white aesthetics of Savages.

Shortly after changing their name from Warsaw, they’re now back with Transmission, their new single that will not, however, appear on their debut LP Unknown Pleasures, which is due to be released sometime this year via Factory Records.
