Love in October’s ‘I Don’t Want to Die Tonight’ is some high-energy pop punk that makes good use of electronic elements. These guys describe themselves as, “an indie rock band from Chicago, IL that blends lo-fi fuzzy guitars, pop hooks and a broken drum machine.” They say this “is the first single from [their] new album, SHAPES, which will be released mid February, 2019. The song is a direct response to a panic attack and captures a primal response to the daily shit that we all have to deal with.” The band definitely sounds a lot like Mindless Self Indulgence, but it also feels like they take a lot of cues from post-punk revival groups like Interpol or Bloc Party. In fact, it could even be said that in a lot of ways they sound like a sped up, mechanized version of some of The Strokes’ earlier work. This is a fun, high-energy track.
