London noise trio Girls in Synthesis share new video

April 9, 2017

“Feral No Wave antics sluiced through a penchant for live Suicide recordings” – CLASH
 Following the released of their debut AA single ‘The Mound/Disappear’, Girls in Synthesis have now shared their new video.
The video for ‘Disappear’ puts the band into a vulnerable and humiliating position. The ‘tidy mess’ of the video represents the isolated and hands-tied emotion of the songs narrator, being forced to accept vivid and amorphous baggage of the past, but never to experience it again. Directed by Camile Leme Nelson and choreographed by ZOOFAN and Bea Dewhurst, the video was filmed in one single take. Hours of preparation advanced the short filming time of 4 minutes, one false move and the video would have been blown.

The release represents the band’s first ever recordings, capturing their live energy and relentlessness. ‘Disappear’ sees the band apply a metronomic, lopsided groove to their splintered, tearing guitars. The heavy and driving bass riff that underpins the song anchors a deceptively sparse arrangement. The lyrics focus on an individual’s nostalgia for past glories; torturing themselves with vivid memories of their once high status. The confinement and claustrophobia cutting with every lonely, bleak afternoon at home.

Girls In Synthesis formed in late 2016 to aurally represent the noise and violence of the modern world.
Since playing their riotous debut shows in London last September, the group have established a firm reputation as a live sonic attack on the senses. Shows with Cherry Glazerr, comrades in arms (and Fat White Family side project) Revenue and a particularly intense show for the elite punk promoters DIY Thursdays have solidified their place as intense outcasts on the London circuit.
Live shows are filled with long periods of noise and feedback, band members running into the audience and garbled Dictaphone audio, featuring dialogue from the UK governments Protect and Survive nuclear war video, Orson Welles speech from the film The Trial and audio from US cult Heaven’s Gate’s suicide video.
