Lou Smith

ロンドン/ペッカム拠点のアートロックバンド Black Bordelloが、11/30にHideous Mink Recordsからリリースしたニューシングル 'Drones'のMVを公開!

ディレクターは Lou Smith, Sienna Bordello。

3月発売予定のEP『White Bardo』収録曲。前回の'Nunhead'に続いて個性的なサウンドを展開してます。

曲のインスピレーションは下記を読む限りシリアスなんだけど、録りためた深夜練の半寝半笑いのセッションを継ぎ接ぎにしたかのような遊び心のあるアレンジと、劇的なボーカルの中毒性が半端ないです。

 

“The idea for 'Drones' came about after I watched a documentary about a Drone pilot. He was a gamer who had been headhunted by the US military and recruited into the military workforce. He was given a gaming station with Xbox-like controllers and vintage screens which showed simplistic colours, much like the platform arcade games of the 80s and 90s. He was given missions like ‘cut the grass’, ‘trim the weeds’, ‘tidy this area’. After his service was done, he suffered PTSD when the realisation that he’d been controlling the distribution and attack of drone missiles on civilians sank in. I thought of this as an interesting subject matter for the song, namely because we were in a global pandemic and all life as we knew it had been halted, yet at the same time the UK and US (amongst others) governments had put more money into military than ever before, and had recruited more troops to attack parts of the middle east throughout our so-called ‘international emergency’. I was gobsmacked that they were passing needless military operations whilst the world was distracted by the pandemic. Every person in this situation is a puppet, but who is pulling the strings?” - Sienna Bordello
