Automatic, composed of Izzy Glaudini (synths, vocals), Lola Dompé (drums, vocals) and Halle Saxon (bass, vocals), worked with producer and engineer Joo Joo Ashworth of FROTH for the album. Signal ties together the band’s taste for dub reggae, motorik rhythms and gnarly synth work inspired by bands like NEU! and Suicide with the eerie atmosphere of films by auteurs like David Lynch and Dario Argento, to capture what it's like to feel at an angle to the world. 

New single "Too Much Money" chronicles the pitfalls of social media. The track follows previous release "Calling It" and arrives ahead of their month-long residency at The Echo every Monday in August, followed by a Europe and UK tour in October.

Signal speaks directly to the band members' experiences, tied together by a sense of anxiety and alienation so common to life in the 21st century. "Humanoid" echoes "Too Much Money"s sentiment on the disappointing falsity of social media, "Electrocution" recounts a near-death freak accident singer Izzy experienced – alluded to on the album art – and the title track captures the feeling of being trapped in the drudgery of a mundane life "and the realization that nobody is going to rescue you from it but yourself." As they put it: "The world is so fucked up, we don't know how any musician could say, 'This is all peachy.'"
