Norwich trio Mega Emotion released their debut single “Uncomfortable” on cassette via Post/Pop Records.
The track is a heady blend of post punk, stark electronics and synth-laden pop hooks. Inspired by bands like New Order, Metronomy, Chvrches and Kraftwerk, they wanted to create dance music whilst still retaining the rawness of bands like Sonic Youth or the Pixies. It is backed with a striking cover of Madonna’s “La Isla Bonita”.
The songs were recorded next to a swamp in the wilds of Norfolk, with Owen Turner of Sickroom Studios at the helm.
