“Lots of people have been messaging me saying, play Empathy Test! We love Empathy Test! Now I know why…” Rusty Egan, DJ, formerly of Rich Kids & Visage
“Loving this more and more with every listen” Abbie McCarthy, BBC Introducing
‘Monsters’ is the forthcoming single from synth pop group Empathy Test, which is being released ahead of their upcoming album Monsters. The lead track looks to cement it as one of the most exciting and emotional musical experiences of 2020.
‘Monsters’ is a masterpiece brought together by all four band members and labelled by the band themselves as “an ode to anxiety”. It’s accompanied by a highly anticipated video, directed by the award-winning Calum Macdiarmid, which has been nominated for this year’s Berlin Music Video Awards.
It’s the first release from the album which, with extraordinary prescience, covers pertinent themes such as isolation; fear; the dangers of social media and paranoia.
