Kerrang! has premiered the incredible new animated music video for Netherlands' latest single, “Zombie Techno."
Watch it, here:
Kerrang! reports: “If you’ve never done psychoactive drugs in a big city, listening to Netherlands will give you an idea of what the experience is like... The band’s new animated video for the track ‘Zombie Techno’ comes at you with a two-headed approach of alt-comix psychedelia and existential terror.”
The song will appear on the Brooklyn band’s next album, currently in the works for a 2020 release.
Netherlands plays a crushing yet hook-filled brand of psych-sludge-pop, in semi-sync with the sounds of The Melvins, Torche, Mastodon, and Jane's Addiction. Of "Zombie Techno," frontman Timo Ellis states: “The theme of this song, as well as our entire new wave of material, is a comment on the illusion of community and civic participation that’s become the currency of all the new media platforms. Virtually everyone is constantly feeding overlapping algorithms that are sustained by a near-constant supply of curated narcissism, which while outwardly appearing to be ‘issue driven,’ much more often than not, don’t actually reflect any kind of real world action or real coalition-building or organization, whatsoever.”
Catch the onslaught live, October 24th at Brooklyn Bazaar, with Flipper:
