The New Deal dropped a brand new track this week. Since returning from hiatus, the Toronto-based live electronica group has been quite unpredictable. The fact that they’re even the studio is a sign they’re here to stay though. This is the first studio track they have done together in over 3 years. Check out their new song “Sabotage The System” now!
This is definitely where they start to define a line between their old material and the sound they currently have. I can already see a lot of the older fans being disappointed by this so. I don’t agree nor disagree, but I have been listening to them for quite some time and the song is definitely a far cry from previous works like “Gone Gone Gone” or even newer material like “Octobong”. There some merit to the direction this song has taken. To some it might sound a little too close to “big room house”, but the choice of sounds and dramatic melodies more closely resemble the old school Russian synth music of the 80’s. That’s a very integral influence to their style, and I hope their newer material will hold true to that. We will just have to see how the next tour goes won’t we?
