NUDIBRANCH Presents the new single from audio-visual group Polyop - Do I Really Give a Fuck, I'm Just a Square Wave.

Recently, Polyop’s visual artist Alex Kempton was clearing out his Dad’s attic, only to find an old oscilloscope which hadn’t been turned on since 1978. After dusting off and powering up the device, a square wave appeared on the screen. Appearing to be sentient, the square wave claimed that it had been trapped inside the machine, but also that it “didn’t really give a fuck”, because it’s “just a square wave”.

Alex powered the machine back down returning it to the attic where it belongs, but not before capturing the strange waveform on tape.

For the title track, Polyop transformed the recording and turned it into a punchy bubblegum-acid-breaks number. Hear the classic God Break combined with some wiggly Juno-60 filter-work to make your body pulse.

The Rave Retirement Community provided their services on the flip, offering up a unique deep deconstructed-dub version, aimed at the 5am insomnia crew. Get engulfed by spectral waves, dislocated breaks and deep droning subs.
