RA release a music-video for their new song!

The Swedish public service program PSL have premiered a music-video which is something out of the ordinary. Maybe not the video itself, but certainly the music. A band called RA, which have been unknown to me have re-surfaced once again, since they released two demo songs in 2012, which had apparently been widely appreciated. They’ve been compared to the legend that are Bauhaus, but at the same time, they’re a lot more psychedelic and a bit more rock noir than gothic, per se, with large hints of equally as great post-punk. Their latest song “Bloodline“, is a single taken from their forthcoming release “Bloodline EP“, that’ll be released in the “early summer” on Double Sun Recordings.

This particular song is a stark reminder of what Sweden is sorely lacking, whereas I’m glad to announce that the ‘need’ and lack of this kind of music, has been covered by this wonderful band – in a wonderfully extravagant manner. Everything from the widely psychoactive and decadent music-video, to the lyrics in the song and the arrangements – can be considered to be flawless. Yet they’re dirty and fruitful enough to not frame themselves as an overproduced monstrosity.

They’re also going to be the supporting act when Peter Murphy comes to Malmö, performing Bauhaus material and celebrating 35 years of Bauhaus. Which is going to be on the 9th of June. Since there seems to be a little bit of a problem with the embedding, you can watch their music-video (in Sweden) by following this link.

Invisible Guy recommends: 80s New Wave! (Part IV)

Now that we’ve come this far, I’ll be showing off some must haves in the new wave region of the 80s. This serie will be in four parts, ranging from today up until Sunday. Featuring both well-known and obscure gems from the new wave past. Just so that you can have your obligatory reading and some well-needed tips for your music-pool. Not that you’d have a need to expand it after visiting Invisible Guy, but I’ll show you some things that you’ve never heard of but should’ve heard. Hopefully this will be a listening pleasure and hopefully you’ll find tips suitable for yourself. As I said in the latest episode featuring minimal wave: the numbers mean nothing.

You’re now entering Part IV of the recommendation.
