Surgyn - Feed Me Fame
Electro-Industrial, TBM Two years since the debut album 'Vanity' took the world by storm, Surgyn return with a single preceding their sophomore album. With details about the LP still unreleased, the duo have played a number of new tracks at various shows - including Resistanz 2013 (where I first heard "Feed me Fame"), and Cybersonik 2013.

Already a great track live, the single does several things that we needed to experience. We will document those throughout the course of this article.

Strikingly different and rather fabulous is the cover art - leaving no allusions under which to file this release. Whether writing from an auto-biographical point of view or not, the track documents just how much has changed for Surgyn. It's like a tongue-in-cheek acknowledgement of their "rock-star" like success, and details just what it's like living the high life.

The track begins with a slow intro, met with Helicopter noises. Lyrically, the track is so strong. It's built over a deep Techno beat, and is a social commentary on the world.

"Play the prostitute for the Camera" reflects just how demanding being famous can be. "There's Children dying in Uganda; get more attention from the Camera" - a powerful, powerful lyric which is nicely opened to interpretation.

Everything is glammed up to the nth degree - importantly, Sovereign and Veil have played to their strengths, and utilised their uniqueness to set them farther afield from the rest of the pack. Complete with pure dance moments, a catchy chorus that people are already singing along to before any release was planned, and heavy heavy techno, "Feed me Fame" is the best one-track release you'll hear this year.

In terms of the aforementioned "Things we experience", we get a powerful track that makes us all take a long hard look at ourselves. It's a double-edged track as we see both the gorgeous and ugly sides of fame. We also get hit very hard by a powerful reflection of the world that we don't see very often. It's also equally important as Sovereign runs a blog dedicated to lyrical content in Industrial music, so it's great to see that he's setting a good example.

WIth their return, Surgyn unleash their strongest track yet. It can perhaps even be loosely seen as the Industrial/Electro version of "Man in the Mirror" - maybe a bold statement, but that lyric about Uganda is seriously intense.

Buy it.
