Forgotten Gems: The Sound, “Possession”

The Sound were a criminally overlooked English post-punk band from the early-80s… and forgotten gems probably don’t come more forgotten than this track, which to me is every bit as haunting as anything Joy Division ever put out. This track is taken from their second album, “From the Lion’s Mouth.” The Sound continued to put out albums until 1988, when a lack of commercial success split up the band, singer/guitar player Adrian Borland died in 1999 after committing suicide in the London Underground.
