Available on limited edition blue LP (hand-numbered /300), clear LP and cassette, 'New World Artifacts' is a collection of lo-fi post-punk underscored with subtle pop melodies and structures but never far away from bouts of anarchic no-wave dissonance.

'New World Artifacts' a collection of lo-fi post-punk clocking in at 30 minutes, underscored with subtle pop melodies and structures but never far away from bouts of anarchic no-wave dissonance. Here, Unschooling claim loud and clear their desire to return to a sound which is less calibrated, less obvious. It was recorded mostly live in just a few sessions at a farmer friend’s DIY studio located in the Normandy countryside in late Summer 2022.
The band's Vincent Fevrier writes that: “New World Artifacts is an ode to the unexpected, a tribute to many art rock bands who are always where you least expect them. It is both noisy and sensitive. Hot and cold at once.”
For all that the record might be chaotic and experimentally-grounded, it’s above all else a fun and entertaining listen that never takes itself too seriously. It’s for this reason that the band have already been heralded as one of the most exciting up-and-comers in the new school of post-punk revivalists, playing to busy crowds and festival fields across the continent. New World Artifacts might just mark them out as the best in class.
