While Manchester has always been a city synonymous with music, its punk scene has always played second or indeed third string to its more indie-orientated output.
Enter Proletariat, a band who’ve been doing the rounds for just 16 months, and who successfully bridge the gap between the snarling swagger of ‘70s punk and the effortless cool of contemporary indie.
Despite their short space of time together, it’s clear the Manchester four piece are already turning heads and ticking the right boxes. Having been personally asked to support Cabbage on tour, and not to mention selling out a headline show at the Soup Kitchen in celebration of the band’s one-year anniversary, and achieving the same feat for their show at the Deaf Institute in March 2018, alongside the release of their new single, ‘Nervous Energy’. Proletariat are reaching milestones long before some of their more established contemporaries.
‘Nervous Energy’ exhibits their trademark intensity perfectly, acting as a soundtrack to the revolution we all dream of. In a testament to Proletariat’s chemistry as a band, it’s a noticeable progression from earlier releases; and promises the ferocious angst and energy that’s constantly waiting to erupt from the four-piece.
