Adelaide-based post punk/noise pop/alt band Placement have dropped the video for their newest single “New Disease“.
The track is part of our current playlist and came out last week (June 16). Get it here.
Speaking about it, the band said: “New Disease is about living through a historic moment with the rest of humanity. The ideas that run through the song are; faith, justification, trust, addiction, disease, control and the fear of something you can’t control. When sickness still seems like a myth, when you live on an island with infection swirling in the waters around it how do you cope? “
Watch the Conor Mercury-directed video below.
Through a juxtaposition of experimental feedback, dissonance, rich vocal harmonies and spoken word, Placement deliver a ferocious and often partially improvised live show, influenced by performance art.
