Track of the Week: KAI CULT “Cigarette Burns” (2021)

Melbourne post-punker KAI CULT has dropped his follow-up to “Massive Checks“, and it’s another absolute ripper.

Mixed by Ashwin Rao of Singapore’s Knightingale, “Cigarette Burns” is a fast-paced slice of frenetic punk. It’s energetic and anthemic, designed to be played loudly or not at all.

The accompanying music video is a deliciously DIY affair, shot all over Melbourne. Brunswick in particular features heavily amongst the hazy film grain, VHS layers, and bold RBG colour inverts.

KAI CULT says:

The track reflects on mixed feelings while going through tough times, sometimes it may seem like things are okay but deep down they may not be. I set out to capture the mental extremes of what society is undergoing currently in the pandemic.”
