Leading up to their tenth album ‘Worthless Music’, ‘It Is The Face Wish How’ is another slice of epic, self-styled “cinematic punk” from the Leeds quartet.
The band – Steven Morricone, Julia Arnez, Gareth Champion, and Paul Morricone – finally got together in April for the first time in what the latter describes as “an eternity”
“We shot footage for four videos, did a quick photo session and finished the master of the album – all in a couple of days.”
Of the track, he adds: “These days it seems you have to project an ideal image of yourself. We live in a world where everyone is trying to be someone else, and in the process, they forget what they were in the first place. We tried to capture the feeling of constantly being in search of something you will never find with distant, out of reach sounds.”
“Our aim was to use cinematic sounds, like the beginning of the titles of the movie you made about your life. Only you don’t recognise the person playing you. It’s also a good opportunity to bring out the three-part harmony singing that Steve, Julia and I have been doing since we went to school choir together all those years ago. We are a cinematic punk version of The King’s Singers. In the video, directed by yours truly, we stare you out through a constantly rotating circle of light.”
‘Worthless Music’ will be released on December 3rd on Wrath Records – more at www.thescaramangasix.co.uk.
