Prism Tats have released a video for single '11:11' from their latest EP of the same name; out now on Anti- Records.

The video for '11:11', the title track and the last track on the new Prism Tats EP, follows Garett van der Spek through the desolate landscape of urban Los Angeles. A visually desolate American dream that suits Prism Tats' psych post punk musings perfectly.

 

From its first grizzled chords the 11:11 EP is disgruntled, dishevelled and hugely uplifting. You'll find versatile guitars scattered throughout the mini-record, as well as the warm puff of vintage organ reeds frolicking through the bass lines. And although the subject matter might be a little jaded and downbeat (he is in LA after all), you won't be able to suppress the compulsion to dance to it all. Prism Tats' songwriting takes a predictable rock n roll cookie cutter and subverts it through unexpected melodies and psych harmonies. The whole thing is irrepressibly fun to listen to.

Who would've thought that "themes of self-inflicted isolation, working-class hopelessness, and the emotional damage of technology addiction" could be such fun?

 

“I’m superstitious about 11:11,” says van der Spek. “The song’s referencing that, and how the idea that 11:11 means something good’s about to happen is complete garbage—but maybe it’s also not, if you believe in it.”

NO ONE CARES WHAT YOU THINK, BUT LEAVE A COMMENT ANYWAY

We look back on when Hartlepool’s own Plaza kicked off Meet The North festival and peep their new video for 'In The Know'.

As Fluffer Pit Parties grow in numbers and reputation, their DIY danger might be dwindling, but the quality of acts certainly isn't.

So, Arcade Fire have done a U2… but to say they pull it off is the biggest understatement of 2018.
