UK dark electro pop act 404 Error has shared a new single and video, “Vote for Us”. Released last Friday to coincide with the immediate aftermath of the UK General Election 2024, “Vote for Us” also features a new virtual B-side, a reworking of XTC’s post-punk/new wave classic, “Making Plans (for Nigel)”.

“Vote for Us” is the latest offering from 404 Error‘s new album, “Scene Killers”. A semi-anonymous project, 404 Error is the work of a musician going by the name of 36663, whose debut album combines minimal synth, alt electro, darkwave, and synthpop influences.

In a comment the band says that the new 404 Error album, “Scene Killers”, “explores themes around regionally skewed histories and rose-tinted remembrances of the dark alternative scene; the pressure from gatekeepers and influencers to “support the scene” or lose it; and the persistent scapegoating of fans amid accusations of “killing the scene”, when bands, DJs, and promoters fail to generate interest in their events.”

“Scene Killers” by 404 Error is out now from Bandcamp, Spotify, and all major digital music platforms.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
