After forming back in 2006, South Central have gone on to remix tracks for the likes of The Klaxons and The Whip. ‘Society of the Spectacle’ is an album full of their own material with a few brilliant collaborations with the likes of Gary Numan and A Place to Bury Strangers.

The album is a great electronic adventure with synthesisers galore, just what you’d come to expect from a group who have been played by the likes of Annie Mac and Pete Tong. They’ve even toured with Pendulum on their UK tour and Rage Against The Machine.

It’s not all dance music though, this second original offering combines alternative and electronica crossing the musical threshold just like Pendulum and Does It Offend You Yeah? have. ‘No Way Back’ and ‘S.O.S’, do this perfectly, mixing screeching guitars in with a bouncing melody.

The two collaborations on ‘Society of the Spectacle’ are great additions to the album. Gary Numan fits flawlessly into haunting track ‘Crawl’, his vocals polishing the song off. ‘The Moth’, which features A Place to Bury Strangers also goes along a darker route but wouldn’t be out of place in an indie club.

South Central have done a brilliant job at bringing together such different genres of music and not making them sound out of place. There’s a bit of dub step, rock and indie, so something for everyone’s taste

LYRICS TO CRAWL (feat. Gary Numan)

So I fell into you.

And I let you take me for a ride.

What about feelings?
What about love?

What about a promise of
A life that’s better?
What about passion?
What about trust?
What about a promise of
A life that’s better?

And I saw things that ripped 
my soul away.

What about taking?
What about pain?
What about proving that 
There’s nothing better?
What about lying?
What about shame?
What about proving that 
There’s nothing better?

Oh my god.
What have you become.

And I felt things that made my
Thorn skin crawl.

I know what dream of.
I know what you need.
I know there’s only one thing
that makes your sick life better.
I know that you are empty.
I know what you heard.

I know there’s only one thing
that makes your sick life better.
I know you re not sorry.
I know you don’t care.
I know there’s only one thing 
that makes your sick life better
