PROFIT PRISON - New EP Out In September, New Video Released

Seattle (USA) based one-man synth-pop/post-punk/ambient act Profit Prison will release on 11th of September a new EP entitled Dreams Of A Dark Building. The solo work of Parker Lautenschlager, previously in local hardcore and black metal bands as well as power electronics acts, has debuted in 2017 with EP Myra, released via Hospital Productions in 2017 and his previous EP Six Strange Passions was released by Avant! approximately one year ago.

Inspired by Franz Kafka as much as Kraftwerk, Profit Prison achieves a cold minimalism that speaks to the nightmarish dystopia in which it was created, even more so in the light of the political events that shook the US and Parker's very hometown recently.

Profit Prison's new EP Dreams Of A Dark Building continues on the dark path of its predecessor, mixing catchy synth melodies and gloomy atmospheres, all strengthened by 70s disco-like Hi-NRG electronic beats for the perfect dungeon synth pop outcome.

The opener "Cleric" has a riff that could have been written by the evil twin of Gershon Kingsley, "A Premonition" sounds like Ken Laszlo had joined the dark side. "120 Days" is the main single of the EP and it's just melancholically addictive, "In This Hour Of Loss" has got synths that would make Moroder proud. We could go on but we bet you got the score by now.
 
If you're in for the best umbriferous synth music, look no further. Profit Prison just released the video for the single "120 Days" and you can hear and watch it in the player below. Link
