ニューヨーク/ブルックリン拠点のポストパンクバンド Public Practiceが、5/15にWharf Cat Recordsからリリースするデビューアルバム『Gentle Grip』より、先行シングル 'Compromised'のMVを公開!

ディレクターは Josie Keefe, Jonny Campolo (Pill, P.E.)。

Richard Hell and the Voidoids, Talking Heads, Televisionなど70年代後期のNYCなアプローチを現代の音で解釈するバンドの初アルバム。シリアス一辺倒じゃなくてユーモアを感じられるところが好きです。


“'Compromised' deals with the moral gymnastics that many of us struggle with daily just to be a human in this world. How do we balance our desire for material pleasures with our need to be seen as moral and good? What’s more important, the shoe or where it came from? How it was made or how it looks? I am no shining example and I struggle with this constantly.” - Sam York


追記:'My Head'のMVが公開されました。
