A kind of experimental electronic supergroup, Wrangler are named for their self-assigned mission: to wrangle new sounds from old equipment. The gear comes courtesy of analogue synth wizard Ben Edwards, better known as Benge, and his co-wranglers are Stephen Mallinder of dark new wave legends Cabaret Voltaire and Phil Winter from the experimental folk group Tunng. What was conceived as an exploratory project has turned into a band with real longevity: after two albums plus a collaboration with John Grant as Creep Show, they are now onto their third LP.

As everything good about the world goes up in flames, Wrangler provide a party fit for the end of time. 'A Situation' plays heavily on consciousness, combining outdated and primal synths with lyrics portraying a dystopian AI-lead future. This album is not for easy listening. Opener 'Anthropocene' is a paranoid dance track, lyrically hinting that something bad is on the horizon.
