Melbourne’s Screensaver follow quickly on their excellent album Expressions of Interest with a new AA single and the first cut out of the gate sees them sliding away from the darker corners of their debut and into a slackened, neon flicker of synth pop with a pogo pulse. With a crooked smile and a foaming wave of keys, the band cross-wires the maximalist sonic assault of Snapper with the nervy pounce of The Units or Starter. “Clean Current” marks itself among the band’s best so far and a push towards outsized pop that shakes off the post-punk glower. The band’s Chris Stephenson sums up the new single noting, “Clean Current is a good counterpoint to our moodier material, eliciting a sunny day highway vibe juxtaposed against lyrics evoking a restless anxiety. The synth over the chorus is the perfect salve, freezing time until we roll back to where we began.” The new single finds its way out in April from their home at Upset The Rhythm.
