Dutch Criminal Record Unveil "Gaslight" Music Video

Chichester, UK indie /surf band Dutch Criminal Record have unveiled the video for their latest single “Gaslight“.

The track came out in May and will feature on their upcoming debut album ‘Novium‘, due to be released on August 23 via AntiFragile Music Recordings. Buy it here.

Produced by Rob Quickenden and the band, “Gaslight” combines upbeat melodies, jangly guitars, and a post-punk edge. Speaking about it, they said:

“Gaslight is at its heart a song about being young in the U.K. in the point of history where we find ourselves. Lyrically the song is a chaotic intertwining web may different threads of thought and emotion. Regret about the ending of a relationship, the fatigue of constantly struggling financially, guilt about not being where I feel I should be in life, and anxiety and anger about the state of the world.”

The song had quite a difficult birth. The instrumental for the song existed for quite a while before I was able to put any lyrics to it, and when I did I really struggled to find a fitting way to express the themes on the song in an emotionally fitting way. I tried a technique used by Thom Yorke and David Bowie called cut-up technique where I wrote down different lines which felt like themes I wanted to talk about, cut them out and threw them into a bag, picking them out at random to try and organise them into verses.” They added.
