With their vinyl debut, Shanghai all-girl post-punkers Next Year’s Love offer up two raw and dirty cuts of their dark, ‘80s synth goodness. The A side features “Smash the Pink Bug,” a desperately infectious dirge that alternates between spare, atonal melodies and crashing guitar. The B side, “True Love Song,” takes the dance-factor up a notch with drum machine-driven, lo-fi synth-punk, topped by catchy, melodic vocals. Best of all is the mellow-sharp mix of Super Sophia and Vic’s vocals, which, interweaving high-and-urgent with deep-and-alluring, draws you into their fractured, static-pop world. A co-release with Shanghai’s Uptown Records, this 7” is pressed on baby blue vinyl and limited to 500 copies.

Track Name: Smash The Pink Bug
Smash, smash it up
On the door, on the dirty door
Smash, smash it up
On the door, on the dirty door
Pinky buggie blood
dripping on the floor
Pinky buggie blood
dripping on the floor
Track Name: True Love Song
You’re so lovely, it’s true
Look into my eyes, they never lie
Take my hands, soon you’ll understand
You say life is a misery, but I’ll stay with you
Oh, oh…it’s true
I adore you, this is true
I will always smile,
I will never cry
