Legendary avant-garde artist and visionary Amon Tobin has announced a brand new project he's calling Only Child Tyrant. The project, as of now, takes a massive departure from his experimental electronic sound and instead goes for an acid indie rock aesthetic that is both powerful and fresh. If you were unaware this was a new project from Amon, you'd never guess it was the same person. Intense, angular indie rock made by acid dipped machines, Only Child Tyrant conjures up the Artful Dodger of post-rock locked in a raging battle with his own humanity. It’s Amon Tobin channeling a stroppy, relentless kid who’s been listening to his uncle’s collection of rock (from Beefheart and Zeppelin to Fugazi via Dick Dale and beyond) and stealing his brother’s 90’s mixtapes, and it’s all gone awry.
The first single, 'Monkey Box', is out now on all major platforms, and the full album 'Time To Run', will be released July 26 and is available for pre-order here.
