The hotly-tipped Welsh alt-rock outfit Estrons last night debuted their new single "Body" on Jack Saunders' BBC Radio 1 show, who said; "already liking the sound of this... listen to that riff... lead singer Tali's voice is so good!"
Today they release the striking and visceral video for "Body", featuring close ups of Tali Källström's own , who had the following to say about it:
“Shooting the video for Body was one of the most terrifying and liberating experiences of my entire life. For millenniums art has been used to set the paradigm for how our bodies should look. It suppresses us, it creates the unreachable which leads humanity into a pit of judgement, self denial and depression. This video is about studying the real. Celebrating yourself. Sexualising yourself, and letting go of the concept of “flaws” by flaunting who you really are.”
"Body" is the latest, thrilling excerpt from what is shaping up to be a highly anticipated debut. Having performed live in session for Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1, the band took on a successful run of festival appearances, played shows with Pussy Riot, and made a swathe of new fans all over the UK as they supported Garbage on the road.
Coming October 5th, "You Say I'm Too Much, I Say You're Not Enough" is the culmination of over two years hard touring and honing of a sound that has become theirs and theirs alone. Anthemic first single "Lilac" already picked up considerable fan and media attention.
Discussing "Body", lead singer Tali Källström offers; "Resist the paradigms of our digital world, that demands a status of sanitised and pristine physical attractiveness, regardless of truth or fact. Choose not to follow. Search for truth in yourself."
Estrons will tour the UK through the winter, and have announced what will be their biggest London headliner yet at Scala on February 7th next year.
The hotly-tipped Welsh alt-rock outfit Estrons last night announced their much-anticipated debut album "You Say I'm Too Much, I Say You're Not Enough" (pre-order) during a session for Annie Mac on Radio 1, which you can listen to here.
Coming October 5th, the record is the culmination of over two years hard touring and honing of a sound that has become theirs and theirs alone. Anthemic first single "Lilac" has already picked up considerable fan and media attention, chosen by Huw Stephens as his Tune of the Week.
Today the band also release "Cameras", on which Tali sings over jagged guitars a message to her son, meant to be read in the future, “I’ll always put a fight up for you, I’ll buy the day and night for you,” about, in her words, “that one love that can’t be broken, no matter how many times people try to break it down."
"Cameras" is available now as an instant grat on pre-order of the record.
Estrons will be main support to Garbage in September and will be headlining throughout November and early December in support of the album.
They have announced their biggest London headliner yet for Scala on February 7th next year.
Welsh alt-rock outfit Estrons return today with "Lilac", the first song to be taken from fruitful recent sessions with Alex Newport (At The Drive-In, Death Cab For Cutie, Pissed Jeans). Debuted last night by Huw Stephens on his Radio 1 show, he said "Lilac" was "so good" that he played it twice in a row.
A further evolution sonically from what has come before, immediate and anthemic, the song marries tense vocals from Tali Källström to the off-kilter, cutting guitars that Rhodri Daniel has become known for. Tali dedicates the song to "an encounter I had with a teenage girl in the early hours of the morning. I drove past her crying in the street with her shoes in her hand and so I decided to turn the car around to check on her. I'd assumed that she was crying about something superficial and I'd also assumed that the man walking a few feet behind her was trying to take advantage. Turns out the man actually lived on that street and the girl was heartbroken because her dad had just been diagnosed with terminal cancer. We often get things wrong because society leads us to create prejudices on genders; the song is myself reflecting on that. It also celebrates human empathy as the girl I helped was genuinely touched that I'd stopped to check she got home okay. I haven't seen her since that day - but this one goes out to her, anybody who is going through a difficult time and also to all the people out there who have helped me in a crisis. Someone always cares and you can get through it."
