The frenetic, breakbeat and filtered vocal of “Escape” is a combo of nasty electro and hardcore jungle distortion. The title track, “The World is Always Ending”, is a modernized twist on Sneaker Pimps and Chemical Brothers resulting in one of the stand out singles on the label this year.

Strange Parade- Bag of Blood
“Bag of Blood,” the second single from The Watchers, is an amped-up storytelling affair that marries early 80’s new wave with a 60’s girl group beat, landing somewhere between The Chiffons and Echo & The Bunnymen. The story paints a picture of an individual’s paranoia, starting with a social incident, blowing out into a paranoid vision of a chemically-fueled sleepover/
