Today marks the release of HILOTRONS‘ sixth record release To Trip With Terpsichore! Taken from the album, we’re pleased to share A New Town with our readers — a funky new single which serves as the third music video released off the album. When asked about the video, frontman Mike Dubue told AMBY;
“A New Town was co-written with Samir Khan (Tusks, Kepler) about moving from a small town to a big city while lost in a destructive relationship absorbed by drunken nights in familiar bars. The video tells a story of vanquishment using footage edited from Lotte Reiniger’s The Adventures Of Prince Achmed (1926), the oldest surviving animated feature which uses a style Lotte adapted from Wayang shadow puppetry.”
To Trip With Terpsichore is currently available via the band’s website here. The record is “pay what you can”, but fans who choose to purchase the album will receive a second bonus release (which features music Mike Dubue has composed for previous film soundtracks).
