’68: il duo noisey di Atlanta pubblica oggi ‘Bad Bite’

Dopo la prima anticipazione con The Knife, The Knife, The Knife’, ’68, il duo noisey di Atlanta pubblica oggi ‘Bad Bite’, la seconda anticipazione tratta da ‘Give One Take One’, l’atteso terzo nuovo album in arrivo il 26 marzo su etichetta Cooking Vinyl.

‘Bad Bite’, altamente energico, intreccia riff vertiginosi,  colossali toni di chitarra e la precisione della batteria di Nikko Yamada. Il video che accompagna il brano è stato interamente ideato ed animato da Josh Scogin, voce e chitarra del duo. In vero stile ’68, il singolo e le immagini sono spavaldi e crudi, attirando l’ascoltatore con toni vibranti e un inconfondibile muro sonoro che si rifà ad un blues grezzo con sfumature di doom e rock alternative.

Sul video, Josh Scogin afferma: “The “subliminal” messages are actually what became kind of like a journal for me. A bit of a “dear diary” during the 2020 year of lemons. My computer is old and slow so I had to work on this video in small little, 3 second chunks each so, there was one moment that I assumed it would never actually be released to the public, but I had to finish it because I made a promise to myself a few years back that if I start something, I have to finish it. So anyway, I just started writing whatever I felt at the time (I think at one point I have some Star Wars references because I was making my way through each of those movies), and I also started writing the date on it somewhere each time I worked on it. Once I was basically done with the animation, I put it all together for the first time and bounced it down (it took an entire 24 hours to render it down) and I was so stoked. I knew I wanted it raw, and I wanted my “mistakes” to shine through (to rebuttal how perfect, pristine, and fake everything seems to be these days.). I wanted it to be HUMAN but before I actually placed it all together, I just thought it wasn’t going to actually work. Once I was able to see it all it blew me away. I love it.”

Prodotto a Nashville da Nick Raskulinecz  – vincitore di un Grammy e già al lavoro con Foo Fighters, Rush, Alice in Chains, nonchè grande fan di ’68 – ‘Give One Take One’ mostra il meglio dell’abilità di scrittura della band, personale ed indomabile. Il nuovo lavoro segue la scia di ‘Love Is Ain’t Dead’, l’ep pubblicato lo scorso anno quando i precedenti programmi della band di suonare in tour in apertura a Korn e Faith No More sono stati bloccati dalla pandemia.
