Deathsomnia have shared a new video for the song “Self Sabotage”, which is taken from their two-song debut EP, Self Sabotage, out today on Isolation Records, and it features the eponymous track on side A and a cover of Swans’ “Celebrity Lifestyle” on side B.
Watch the “Self Sabotage” music video below:
On Self Sabotage, the trio – Kadri Sammel (Bedless Bones), Richard Powley (Telepathy) and Bruno Russo – worked with New York based producer and collaborator, Ben Greenberg (Uniform. Black Marble, Bad Breeding, VR Sex) who describes the music as a “blending of subtle industrial elements into guitar driven songs as cyberpunk and a welcomed break from current popular darkwave aesthetic tropes.” The powerful Side A song “Self Sabotage” features drums by Mike C. Sharp (Uniform).
Deathsomnia vocalist Kadri Sammel’s beguiling vocal melodies are dressed with Depeche Mode and Primal Scream undertones. She comments: “‘Self Sabotage’ is about beauty and awe. It’s a state where all seems to be lost and you are at least an accomplice, if not the architect of it all. The lyrical themes draw from picturesque memories as well as nuclear testing in the ’50s. A sight to behold. The visuals of the video take us to a scenery of post-historic dread, where to exist is to constantly be on guard; agile and alert. Roaming in the ruins of past grandiosity; rummaging through the layers of disrupted, disjointed effigies that represent the thought imaginarium of a person who has almost parted with humanity. But will never find peace.“
