Choice Music Prize winners Super Extra Bonus Party have been making a return to new music over the past little while.
The band are busy cooking up their third album, long-awaited to say the least. In the meantime, the group have blessed us with a brand new single and video.
‘Some Dark Forces’ features Sorcha McGrath from Ships on vocal duties. It’s an upbeat, electronic indie anthem. Pushed forward on a galloping-style drum pattern, the track is filled with glossy synth lines and muted guitar patterns. A clever bit of arrangement tact gradually adds synths and filter sweeps atop the original mix, giving the song a strong electronic crescendo.
The video, directed by Peter Fleming, is a stroke of genius. It follows a bouncer’s journey from the doors from a well-known Dublin venue to enlightenment by Dublin Bay. We don’t want to say much more on it, bar that the cinematography is gorgeous. Just watch.
