“’The New Depression’ is about the absolute shit show of the current economic climate and our visceral reaction to it,” say UK upstarts State Of You. However, through their angst, the quintet have delivered a track that can not be ignored.

Fueled by a distorted punk attitude, State Of You‘s brand of hardcore-meets-rock’n’roll thrives on ‘The New Depression’Add to that an explosive breakdown with a fiery guitar solo, and you’re left with an infectious, fist-pumping song.

Featuring former members of Outcry Collective, Polar and Hildamay, State Of You sprung into life in 2022 after the pandemic halted their early development. Nevertheless, with a thrilling self-titled EP receiving plenty of praise, and producer (and “kindred audio spirit”) Oz Craggs (Mallory Knox,
As Everything Unfolds, and more) being a close collaborator, State of You have been relentless since.

As they look to “smash the shit out of every stage they get on,” ‘The New Depression’ is the first taster of what is sure to be a big year for State of You.

Having shared the stage with Young Guns in the past, State of You will be leaving their mark when they headline The Fighting Cocks in Kingston on February 24th.

‘The New Depression’ by State of You is available now on Silent Cult.
