A new Locust album titled, “You’ll Be Safe Forever,” to be released April 16 th on Editions Mego label is a labor of love 10+ years in the making. Locust is British electronic music artists, Mark Van Hoen (ex-Seefeel) and Louis Sherman. “You’ll Be Safe Forever” has the unmistakable imprint of 1980’s diesel powered sound–industrial techno, add to that distorted vocals and a fusion of musical genres and what you get is a sinfully exquisite electronic album, a successful amalgamation of 50 years of electronic musical history. Sure to be a classic and a source of inspiration for new artists, and what we can describe as ground-breaking sound experimentation, defiant of musical genre boundaries and timeless. Open your mind, take the journey, listen and prepare to be hypnotized.
Locust will celebrate their album with a U.S. debut tonight, April 5th at Brooklyn’s, The Bunker @Public Assembly.
