Automatic Announces Debut LP ‘Signal’

Los Angeles band Automatic, announce 'Signal'
Automatic 'Sgnal'

Automatic have revealed their debut full-length Signal, will come out on September 27th via Stones Throw Records. Comprised of Izzy Glaudini (synths, vocals), Lola Dompé (drums, vocals) and Halle Saxon (bass, vocals), the Los Angeles trio worked with producer/engineer Joo Joo Ashworth of Froth for the album. Along with the announcement of Signal, Automatic has shared the album track “Too Much Money” Automatic are doing a month-long residency at The Echo every Monday in August, followed by a run of European and UK dates in October.

Signal speaks directly to the band members’ experiences, tied together by a sense of anxiety and alienation so common to life in the 21st-century. “Humanoid” echoes “Too Much Money”s sentiment on the disappointing falsity of social media, “Electrocution” recounts a near-death freak accident singer Izzy experienced – alluded to on the album art, and the title-track captures the feeling of being trapped in the drudgery of a mundane life “and the realization that nobody is going to rescue you from it but yourself.” As they put it: “The world is so fucked up, we don’t know how any musician could say, ‘This is all peachy.'”
