Bitvert – Son of a Glitch: Punk May Be Dead; but Dark Wave Post-Punk Isn’t

Bitvert must have known I was a sucker for a good pun when they titled their latest single ‘Son of a Glitch’. I can’t be the only one won over by that title. Thankfully, when the beat kicked in, it’s safe to say I wasn’t disappointed. There are very few emerging artists that can hold my attention in a 6-minute track, however Bitvert can successfully count themselves amongst my favourite progressive artists.

The bouncing vibes hit you and give you little of a choice whether you bounce along to them. The track is one of the most immersive Post Punk styled Trip Hop mixes I’ve ever heard. There are industrial undertones, and infinite weaves of reverb for you to get lost within. There’s a delectable reminiscence to bands such as SPACE in Bitvert’s sound, yet it didn’t surprise me to learn that Joy Division were amongst the London based bands influences.
