Song: Corpus – “(I Plan To) Starve (On You)”
Song: (I Plan To) Starve (On You)
Location: Sydney, Australia
Date of Release: 06/11/2014
For Fans Of: Pulled Apart By Horses, Twentyone Pilots (early stuff)
Why They Aren’t Famous: This is what happens when you give two guys a recording studio in Japan for a week with an Abridged Bible and copious amounts of contraband
Alrighty, so the track ‘(I Plan To) Starve (On You)’ screamed at me. Amongst the yelling of both BDSM and Biblical references, accompanied by the sweet guitar licks and hard-hit drumming, I felt the bassline and lyrical undertones went missing (possibly somewhere in the Garden of Eden). The production luckily draws these back together building a very interesting song. I get the feeling that the duo wanted to be this centuries Adam and Steve. Although it wasn’t the most technical of songs on their relatively new album, Corpus has once again shown how a duo can do just as good or if not better than half of those New Age and Alt Ska bands coming out of every brothel and skate park in Aus.
(I Plan To) Starve (On You) wouldn’t have been the song that I would’ve chosen to be the second single but I’m glad it was. The sharp spitting lyrics show a more raw and angry Corpus. Unlike other tracks on the album it’s straight to the point. ‘Fuck you for screwing me over and now I have to live with the consequences of no sex’. Versatility comes hand in hand with having a well rendered final product and it seems that’s exactly what they’ve produced.
I could see it being a hit and crowd starter at live shows, these guys have promise and unrelenting potential a few one night stands from now.

I Probably Hate Your Band is a shitty website full of asshole writers. We do nothing but destroy the hopes and dreams of young bands, and have never offered a single positive thing to the world. /Sarcasm
