シンセポップバンド Dirty Nice、'Sunshine End Times'のMVを公開

Henri Holz & Charlie Pelling

イングランド/ロンドン・ボーンマス拠点のシンセポップバンド Dirty Niceが、7/7にChiverinからリリースしたニューシングル 'Sunshine End Times'のMVを公開!

Dirty Niceは Charlie Pelling, Mark Thompsonの2人組で、これまでに Dâm Funk, Elder Island, Cousin Kulaらと共演してます。

怒涛のシングルリリースとしなやかにジャンルの枠をすり抜けるセンスで徐々に頭角を現してきた印象で、特にハウスやディスコ経由の音が強いのかなと思いきや、今回の新曲でブチ上げインディーポップをぶっ放してて清々しいです。加えて、テイストは変わってもインスタ(@dirtynice_exe)でみせる美学はブレないところも好き。突き抜けそう。

 

“Although written last year, the deep dark depths of lockdown inevitably imbued the song with new and more morose meaning.

It came to life the morning after the UK general election. The conservatives had won a landslide victory, led by a liar. That made two mad men, with equally mad hair, supposedly in charge of actual countries full of actual people, many of whom had inexplicably given them their trust. Meanwhile, the planet had decided to burst into flames - the Amazon, California, Australia.

Times were deeply worrying and deeply strange. But surely they couldn’t get much worse? Cue Corona. Cue lockdown. Cue our government’s inept response. Cue Dominic Cummings, slippery as always, breaking his own rules and getting away with it. Cue protests against institutional racism being met with more oppression and force. A world already off balance, given that little extra push. Tumbling, flailing, picking up pace, and now here we are, still free falling, reaching out for a hand to hold.”
