Electronic punk band Go Away Robot brings listeners a captivating new single featuring their unique cross-genre sound.


The members of Go Away Robot grew up playing in their respective local punk/hardcore scenes before coming together—Jon in the North Bay, Dan in Pacifica, and Alex in Florida. Their moniker was inspired by the negative sentiment towards automated technology, from self-driving cars to AI.


“We started writing dance music mixed with emo and hardcore. Heavier music mixed with electronic music,” shares Alex. They didn’t quite fit in any one genre, so they made a sound of their own.


The single, “Strange Days,” was born in a time that was very unusual, uncomfortable, and downright perplexing at times. Alex was listening to a lot of hip-hop and his vocals were influenced by Lupe Fiasco. “Alex and Jon were in each other’s COVID bubbles and continued writing,” tells the band. “This song is basically about fighting with addiction…and inevitably trading one addiction for another, not ever really solving the problem,” says Jon.


“Strange Days” is the title song on their 3-track album “Strange Days.” The album has a picture of a flaming keyboard on the cover, a keyboard that the band set on fire for this album release.


A mainstay in their music is the prevailing theme of drug and alcohol abuse, alongside other darker topics. “Their album has a lot of imagery on what’s going on in San Francisco as far as drug use and people on the streets,” explains Go Away Robot. 


Go Away Robot’s rowdy live performances involve mosh pits, dance offs, and occasional police incidents. Their habit of bringing their own dance club live audio system with them has got them some heat with the authorities.


Whether they are performing live on stage or capturing their sound in the studio, Go Away Robot delivers through and through.


“We make music we want people to dance to, music we want people to hear the lyrics and feel them. Our lyrics are typically sad but with electronic happy parts and more aggressive parts as well.”


In the coming months, Go Away Robot looks forward to sharing more releases with fans.


“We love working on music and want to share it with other people,” tells Alex, as Jon adds, “I just hope they wanna come out to shows and get crazy.”
