Brooklyn Noise-Pop trio A Very Special Episode has released a new single and an accompanying music video for “Strobes.” The single can be found on the band’s upcoming sophomore album, Freak Me Out, which will be released on June 23rd via Hidden Home Records/EWEL Records.
Vocalist/bassist Kasey Heisler reflects on the track:
“Art and media are at their best when they feel dangerous, dancing a fine line between providing the audience with an exciting and groundbreaking misadventure and not coming off so intimidating and aggressive that you alienate them. ‘Strobes,’ both the audio and video, is a celebration of that idea and feeling and how fun it is to dance around that line without being completely sure of how close you are to crossing it or not.”
The accompanying visual for “Strobes” harnesses the frenetic and fuzzy energy of the audio to deliver a restless immersive experience.
Guitarist Patrick Porter said the following:
“There’s a beauty in chaos and noise, and when utilized properly both are fantastic adhesives for disparate pieces in video and sound collages. As people we’re messy byproducts of our influences and the media we grew up with and our music, of course, is as well. Always searching for something new and novel to “freak me out” and add to life’s pile of interesting and noteworthy experiences that are the raw materials of our art.”
