barbed-wire-500x12

Band name:
HUMAN FORM

Date & location formed:
Formed Autumn ’14 in London, UK. Demo was recorded in January of this year and we played our first show in February.

Reason for forming:
Falling in and out of love and hate with each other.

What are your lyrics about?
Avoiding human contact; failures of the not-so-distant future; Self-dizgust, self-congratulatory art projects; orgasms of the past, current hangovers; ripping it all up and not starting again, these are not/might well be the last days.

How would you describe your sound?
Bad-weathered/ill-tempered dark & doomy punk with a heavy derby of regional British accents. Strong West Coast influence (total WIPERS worship through to PERENNIAL DEATH) meets YOUNG GINNS or MOSS ICON, and a bit of recent Sydney scraw (OILY BOYS) thrown in there somewhere too.

What’s in the future for this band?
Unsure, we just played our best show yet supporting VEXX, but the guitarist and bassist just broke up so maybe we did too.
