Australian band Collegians' new single, fresh off the back of the success of their debut release Vaccine, is the aptly titled Black Mass, an aural assault which pulls no punches and will surprise all. It's an anti-establishment ode disguised as a dizzying after-hours club floor anthem. Vocalist Glenn Patrick's pleas are barely restrained as it rallies against a feverish electro backbone fleshed out by pummelling drums, insidious riffs and chant hooks. The lyric is ambitious and attempts to cover big themes in a bite-sized chunk of dark indie rock yearning. It has all the flourishes of a pop protest song but with a shadowy, unrepentant heart. Think The Clash's London Calling on steroids and you're getting close. And beneath the apocalyptic blasts, there is a deeper craving, a song which is a call-up as much as it is a provocation.
