Podge
April 10 - 24
Liverpool-based musician Podge joins OUTPUT for the latest instalment of our postal exhibition series, timed to coincide with the release of their latest EP Samuso. Podge’s music, which they describe as “catchy tunes and weird noises”, has been making waves in the Liverpool scene since they began releasing it online in 2018. Samuso is an energetic and expansive blend of styles, shifting from lo-fi bedroom pop through glitchy rhythms and retro computer game sounds. Led by sunny lockdown anthem Go_Out, it is a fully-realised collection of engaging and emotional modern pop music that sounds completely different from one minute to the next.

Part of an emerging movement of local musicians who are exercising total control over their sound and aesthetics, Podge’s self-shot videos and design work play an important role in defining their personality as an artist. Their print design - a double sided, three-colour risograph produced locally at Granby Press - pays homage to the on-screen graphics from the 1999 PlayStation game Chrono Cross, part of a gaming franchise whose soundtracks were a big influence in the creation of the EP. The print features a seies QR codes, which lead to tracks that did not make it onto the EP.
