If I could describe ‘Watching You Suffer’ from London trio Pozi in one word, it would definitely be quirky… With a raw punk energy and attitude, the track resonates a strong sense of emergency and alarm, coupled with a dystopian DIY music video that surely helps the case.
The main female character is alone in the midst of a sterile world inhabited by human-like, faceless creatures dressed in red, the colour of danger. The raw vocals are reminiscent of The B-52s and the lack of guitars is a definite innovative plus – with the violin and its mid-track solo being a key highlight of the song. The growling, constant bass-line continues to evoke the sense of urgency, and is almost lifelike, emulating the music video’s main character’s sense of loneliness and of being misunderstood.
Pozi’s violin driven punk surely makes the trio a stand-out act that you should definitely keep your eyes and ears on!
