Brain Bent (2023)

Calgary, AB

There’s a biting satire running through Brain Bent’s shout-sing take on garage punk that gives their listeners a twisted grin while their hips unwind. Somewhere between early Devo and Office Space, the band’s keyboard-laden rave-ups writhe and wriggle while lyrics tackle the indignity of working menial jobs and panic attacks. This spring’s double A-side single Boilerplate is a perfect entrypoint to Brain Bent’s sardonic sound.
