Mekong, an enigmatic one-man venture, seamlessly fuses dark post-punk and dark wave sensibilities with a touch of 80s British goth culture. The brainchild of a Portuguese artist based in Krakow, Poland, Mekong’s distinctive sonic identity is defined by an entrancing and atmospheric amalgamation of resonant bass lines, celestial guitar harmonies, and profound synth soundscapes.
“Out of Control” emerges as a chilling musical narrative from Mekong, exploring the labyrinthine depths of emotional chaos and introspection. Its provocative lyrics offer a striking portrayal of darkness and looming despair, guiding listeners through a voyage of internal strife and acknowledgment of life’s inevitable end. The haunting melodies and atmospheric soundscapes crafted by Mekong amplify the emotional weight of the words, culminating in a deeply affecting auditory journey. This poignant sonic exploration stands as a testament to Mekong’s ability to connect with listeners on a profound level, offering a shared space of resonance and understanding.
Out of Control is part of a compilation of twenty Polish post-punk bands put together by NoPasaran Records and Zima Records called NAJMŁODSZA GENERACJA (Youngest Generation).
