The rising 4-piece release a 3-minute assault fluctuating from angular post-punk to fast-paced garage.

Rising Rotterdam post-punk Library Card release their first new single of 2023. With ‘Cognitive Dissonance,’ the 4-piece devise a 3-minute onslaught on the senses as the track restlessly fluctuates from angular post-punk to fast-paced garage. Spearheaded by Lot van Teylingen, whose spoken word alternates between cynicism and sincere in a matter of seconds, Library Card leave room for their respective band members to showcase themselves equally, from Emre Karayalçin’s unorthodox eye-catching rhythms to Kat Kalkman’s driving bass lines and Mitchell Quitz’s seemingly shape-shifting guitar performances.

Speaking on the release of new single ‘Cognitive Dissonance,’ the band said:

“Existence itself is erratic and inconsistent, life cannot be lived in a flawless manner. We can try as hard as we want to be compassionate, empathetic, and accepting of the things we fear but there will always be a part of us flirting with being selfish, jealous, or vengeful. To accept this duality is to accept our own humanity.”

Library Card’s new single ‘Cognitive Dissonance’ is out now via AT EASE. Library Card will release their debut EP in 2024.
