Thomas Azier’s latest single and visual, ‘Entertainment’, is the second single taken from his upcoming album, ‘Love, Disorderly’. The single depicts all of the granular and pumps in the underlying angst of personal hypocrisy and cultural relevance.
Said Thomas on ‘Entertainment’: “The news gives me a similar stimulus as social media or entertainment. I’m interested in my reaction to the fear, the excitement and the numbness. I want to be able to come to terms with feeling uncomfortable”.
Composed and recorded with Finnish experimental guitarist and producer Obi Blanche and musicians from various orchestras in Amsterdam ‘Entertainment’ taps into a dark, restless vein of anthemic pop laced with post-punk austerity, delivered through a sense of socio-political urgency, freeform expression and unflinching experimentation.
Like the tamped down frustrations of us all, the jittery anxiousness of ‘Entertainment’ flows like the cosmic winds, playing like the fingers of the heavens, praying in the light of no evidence. An art piece of decadent reverbs and sound effects, perfectly painting, of our own personal whims.
Look for more of this creative excellence, from Thomas Azier.
The visuals accompanying the single perfectly depicts Thomas’ inspirations and create a compelling visual continuity with the recently released documentary-style video for ‘Love, Disorderly’. Using a selection of iPhone video recordings taken between 2015 and 2020. The video was directed by Nils Edström,
