SONG PICK: Black Marble – Preoccupation (Video)
Black Marble‘s new single “Preoccupation” got us hooked immediately with its sweet analog synths and managed to keep the momentum going, thanks to the warm and earthy vocals and the irresistible production. Throw in a lovely, video by mixed-media collective Crack Cloud and we’re officially swooning. The video plays with a meta approach in a very joyous way and will put a smile on your face!
Chris Stewart aka Black Marble says:
A kind of revolutionary spirit but back to nature post apocalyptic motif is what ‘Preoccupation’ is about. Sort of a return to barbarism, reclamation by nature over the state and the protagonists are observers of this going on and narrating it from an anthropological point of view…So anything that hints at these motifs but in your own way. “What is on the way?” is just questioning what is coming specifically but knowing what’s coming generally. I counted twice 1,2,3,4, but I reversed it, so it’s counting down – or counting up rather, but in reverse.
“Preoccupation” is taken from the new Black Marble record titled Fast Idol, out 10/22/21 on Sacred Bones Records. Pre-order Fast Idol here. Listen to “Preoccupation,” our Song Pick of the Day, and don’t miss out on the lovely video:
