Chicago-based duo HIDE, have announced their debut album with striking collaborative video between the band, Nedda Afsari, Kristin Cofer and NYC-based Menthol Pictures. The track, titled “Wildfire,” is the first to be revealed from HIDE’s forthcoming LP Castration Anxiety.
Watch the video below.
“The first single off our debut album Castration Anxiety is ‘Wildfire.’ We made this video with a power trio of women photographers/film makers who we have worked with in the past and were eager to do something more involved with. ‘Wildfire’ is about the earth rejecting its inhabitants. The album overall is about autonomy, identity, and power dynamics,” commented HIDE’s Heather Gabel.
Starting in 2014 as a collaboration between Gabel and percussionist Seth Sher, HIDE has spent the past three years aggressively rendering a spate of singles and EPs. Castration Anxiety follows 2017’s politically charged Black Flame EP.
Castration Anxiety is due out digitally and on vinyl via Dais Records on March 23.
