Oakland-based minimalist post-punk-funk quartet Naked Roommate have shared a new video for ‘Repeat’, taken from their debut album Do The Duvet, out now via Upset The Rhythm and Trouble in Mind.

Originally conceived in 2018 by Amber Sermeńo & Andy Jordan — partners in art & life — Naked Roommates’ debut album proffers leftfield hijinks via punk execution, answering all the questions posed by questionable post-punk revivalism with sour lemon sneering and cherry-sweet smiles.

With its cyclical synth and drum patterns ‘Repeat’ is “A positive groove to get you through the daily grind.“says Amber Sermeńo. The track’s single-line lyrics, “Look Good. Smell Good. Repeat.” echoing her sentiment between waves of hot and sticky guitar pulses.

Elaborating on the new visual, Amber says; “This video (just like the song) latches onto familiar and aesthetically pleasing pastiches. So much so you might forget you’re listening to radical anarcho-pop… just like Chumbawamba”

Repeat captivates. Shimmering chords are welcomed to this orchestral journey, these shimmering notes work with the addictive bed of electronic elements and an infectious beat, all of which built up through the ongoing time signature of this track.

Repeat is the perfect piece of experimental exploration- utilizing the power of this track through the carefully controlled bursts of intensity found in the vocal delivery and the vibrance of this track.

This ominous electro-pop atmosphere that initiated the start of the track, this breaks out 2 minutes 30 seconds in, now the instrumentation focuses on this immersive and intertwining guitar riff and the jagged addition of the essential synth waves. Harnessing the power once more in the vocal deliverance and charming lyrics adds to the overall striking and soulful appeal of Repeat. And the clue’s in the song title, this track is so more-ish, so hypnotic, the world Naked Roommate have just crafted will make you stick this track on repeat.
