Suspectre is a new post-punk band of three friends based in Frankfurt, Germany. After having spent the last years in several DIY contexts and music projects they finally started this new band in 2018. They played a few concerts in 2019, but were rather quickly stopped again by the pandemic.
Nevertheless they recorded a 12 inch record as their debut release in 2020. It contains 8 songs, that are a diffusely influenced blend of various punk-related genres held together by its basic 3 instrument arrangement. Combining the rhythm-driven verve of garage punk with a warm and melodic pop appeal, they create their very own sound in the vast post-punk landscape.
Lyrically the songs reflect on inner states and depict the individuals’ behavior in modern consumerist society. In particular they focus on the experiences of alienation and social pressure. Meandering between the discontent of unsolved expectations and the longing for something better, they comment on the strains of contemporary life.
