Dead Boy Robotics release Arrival video and free download
“…like 65daysofstatic hacking at the innards of the original Dr Who theme” – The Skinny
Edinburgh trio Dead Boy Robotics return with their dominant new track Arrivals available now as a free download via Brothers Grimm. The first track to be released from their upcoming second album New Cells it has already received great support with the video, directed by Graham Sutherland, premiering on The Skinny.
You can watch the video now on the bands YouTube channel
On the surface the song has all the hallmarks of a great lead track; guitar hooks, a powerful chorus and haunting vocals, however when you listen a little closer it becomes apparent that Arrivals also has a much darker side. The lyrics paint a picture of a dystopian post-apocalyptic world where humans have to struggle to survive, not your usual subject matter in today’s music scene!
You can give the track a listen and download it for free via the bands SoundCloud page
To those who know the band already the subject matter will not be a surprise. Listing their amongst influences Space, Blade Runner, the human struggle against inevitable extinction… and Xbox (of course), Arrival is a great introduction to what’s in store on the new album.
Recorded at Tape in Edinburgh, and mastered in New York as part of the recording of New Cells, Arrvial’s murky, brooding sound brings to mind comparisons with HEALTH and The Horrors but with stong influence from the dark side of 80’s pop and bands like Depeche Mode.
New Cells is released digitally via Brothers Grimm on 20th November 2015. A limited edition colour vinyl will be available in 2016.
