Les Techno – “Where Were You? (Artwork Censored)”


’80s guitar tones and a galloping bass line establish a fun, nostalgic vibe on “Where Were You? (Artwork Censored)”, the newest effort from Les Techno, the NYC psychedelic act who impressed previously with “Trophy Wife“, which hearkened to the sound of Echo and the Bunnymen with its Moog-accompanied jangle-rock. “Where Were You? (Artwork Censored)” was written in response to the events in Charlottesville, VA this past September, where neo-Nazis obtained a mainstream podium, with the censored bit in reference to the track’s art being censored on Spotify and iTunes. The track’s industrial feel and ’80s vibe plays well alongside the biting lyrics, repeating “show me something that I don’t wanna see” with contemporaneous effect.
