Syd.31 Releases New Music Video "We Are The Freaks"
Those of us who have studied cinema, novels, and all science fiction works from thirty to forty years ago know that such media promised us societal decay transforming cultures into withering brute. There was no utopias, only dystopian ideals shielded by what was thought to be right. When those political turnouts made their way to become true, everyone turned to a way to vent their frustrations. Some turned to war. Some turned to crime and vandalism. Some just turned to sheer violence. Alcohol, depression, drugs-anything to escape reality. And in a time when all this chaos is breaking through the headlines, no one would really guess that someone fighting for a just cause, harmony, and peace would be leather-clad post-apocalyptic electropunks who look like the main antagonist's minions straight out of a Mad Max film.
This is where Syd.31 steps in, the Manchester based four piece band that consists of frontman Dr Magic, Dani Graves, Kara Wolf, and Bad Charlotte. Without a doubt we have loved their music in the past and seeing them put together a music video and release it for the world to see. They play live, they shout, they're angry, and you can watch it right below:
'We Are the Freaks' comes off their upcoming album The Last Punks on Earth which is due out in March 2017. Speaking of the lead single, Dr Magic had this to say:
It’s largely biographical in emotional terms. It’s digesting a time in my life that was very hard for me. I didn’t realise how bad it was while I was living it, I took it as that’s just how it all was. But there are certain events that were just horrific: the look in someone’s eyes as they open the door and see you covered in blood again. No one should ever have to witness the hurt for you in their eyes.
I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
