For those in the know, the name H2SO4 will strike an instant chord. One of the best-kept secrets of the late ‘90s, the electronic indie collective made their mark with a string of impressive singles and albums at the turn of the millennium, creating a legacy that has endured to this day. With songs featured on popular TV shows like ‘The Sopranos’, ‘Six Feet Under’ and ‘Queer As Folk’, they’ve become a central part of our musical landscape, and as their new single ‘Feed Me’ proves, they’re still pushing boundaries well into the 2020s.
Beginning in 1998 as a remix project between electro-pioneers CODE and indie songsmiths Sulphur, H2SO4 gained immediate support from legendary tastemakers like Pete Tong and John Peel. Bolstered by singles like ‘I Need Love’ and ‘Little Soul’, the project truly took flight with the release of their debut full-length album, ‘Machine-Turned Blues’, an instant classic that caught the attention of the one-and-only Bob Geldof. While co-writer and producer Andy Phillips broke away from the collection in 2000 to form the production partner of Bombay Monkey with Guy Martin, H2SO4 has continued to make waves through the combined talents of Graham Cupples and James Butler, delivering a brilliant blend of ‘80s tinged electronica that continues to impress fans and critics alike.
Earlier in the year, H2SO4 joined forces with Bombay Monkey to deliver a seminal new album, ‘Love and Death’, a nine-track affair that marked the welcome return of the collective. Capitalising on the momentum of the album, they’ve also shared an undeniable string of singles, including the visceral, enigmatic, and slightly unhinged epic of ‘Feed Me’.
A dark maelstrom of pulsating beats, driven, electronic tones, pop-prog sounds, sharp, metallic vocals, and twisted, cinematic production, the new single is a quintessential release from H2SO4. Tune in to the new single below, or find it on our latest Spotify playlists where it’s streaming alongside a stream of other impressive artists.
Easily one of the most entrancing and invigorating singles of the year, ‘Feed Me’ has all the hallmarks of a true H2SO4 classic, and we can’t wait for the world to catch on. Stream the new track today, and don’t forget to lend your support to the collective by following them on Spotify below.
