Naked Giants zum neuen Video:
“This song came about by reflecting on our experiences as a young touring rock band. There’s a whole whirlwind of stuff going on: a lot of fun, privilege and the opportunity to spread joy and positivity, but also a lot of uncertainty, anxious situations and the ever-present struggle to stay mentally healthy in a world that just doesn’t have time for it. So there grows this dissociation, these two worlds happening at once, one inner and one outer—and they’re always chaotically scrambling around each other.“
“In addition to this, we’d be doing a disservice not to acknowledge that we have so much privilege going into touring; we only see the insidious racism and misogyny of the music industry from afar, and there’s an immense pressure—positive pressure—to use our platform to speak out against this both onstage and with fellow industry folks, even as we figure out how to fight it within ourselves. So all of this wraps up into this song, which attempts to catalog these disparate emotional battles and set it to some bombastic party rock. Because at the end of the day, we make music for people who just want to let loose from their own inner chaos for a little while.“
Das neue Album „The Shadow“ wird am 21 August via New West Records veröffentlicht. Produziert wurde das Album von Chris Funk. Nach ihrem Debutalbum „SLUFF“ (2018) und der EP „Green Fuzz“ (2019), folgt nun das zweite Album der Jungs aus Seattle.
Die Videopremiere zu „The Shadow“ wurde via SPIN veröffentlicht. SPIN sagt folgendes zum neuen Video: „Take A Chance‘ best encapsulates the band’s ethos as they head into The Shadow. In a shade under three minutes, the clip see the trio dance together but separately in quarantine and the song is a callback to classic early 2000s garage rock.“
Naked Giants äußern sich wie folgt zum neuen Video: „Take A Chance’ is a new step in the dance-the-stress-away attitude we’ve had since the band was formed. This time around it’s a bit more focused – we’re exploring these big unanswered questions in our lives, like the mechanisms of privilege and oppression or the capitalist oxymoron of individualism and assimilation, and we’re pairing it all with a danceable backbeat to tell people it’s ok to get up off the couch and do something about it.“
