We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Freak Genes’ music video for their song Waxing Moon” (watch it below). The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming album III, which is being released through Drunken Sailor Records. You can purchase the album here.
The band commented on the song & video:
“For ‘Waxing Moon’ we were thinking about information overload and how frantic life is…worrying about your job, your health and measuring everything. You go for a run not because it’s fun to move but because you want to burn some calories, you visit interesting places not so you can enjoy them but so you can take photos for your Instagram. With the video we wanted to take these ideas and make something fun. Charlie created some collages and Andrew cut up footage of the oddest adverts he could find – after all, adverts are all about cramming as much information into you as quickly as possible. We mixed them together and ta-da, one video! Hopefully you enjoy it…and it doesn’t just make your information overload problem much, much worse.”
About the band:
For their third LP, Freak Genes have unearthed 12 more sort-of-pop sort-of-not songs for your ears to enjoy. Making use of a synthesizer found in a skip and a guitar that won’t stay in tune, III is garage rock meets Gary Numan. There are some hit tracks, weird stuff and almost intentional accidents. If you like making functional use of dysfunctional ideas, this is for you…and if you love DAF, The Units, Lodger-era Bowie, 154-style Wire or The Flying Lizards then so much the better.
