“Fear” EP, coming out on March 19th 2021, includes 3 brand new songs + 3 remixes by the big sensation Molchat Doma, the 80s heroes Clan Of Xymox, and one the best new darkwave act, Forever Grey from LA, all released on Swiss Dark Nights Record Label.
The global pandemic has upset all the plans Ash Code had for 2020, numerous European gigs have been canceled including new USA and Latam tour. A new almost finished LP was trashed because it didn’t fit with the reality of the moment.
The band experienced the negative mood of the lockdown months, stayed home mostly, and creating a series of online charity initiatives: the first made at home got incredible feedbacks (Click here to see).
After spending the summer in Naples(South of Italy), the band established a new connection with the place they live in and found inspiration again to write new songs.
– Quote about ‘FEAR’ Video from the director Elio De Filippo:
“The video was inspired by the first experimental techniques of horizontal editing, a tribute to the great artists experimentation on film such as Armand Sabattier and Man Ray, pioneers of the solarization of the image, and Zbigniew Rybczyński.
A layering of images create unique and almost unpredictable effects in their interaction, an overlap of thoughts, memories, desires and synaesthesia that our mind has been forced to accumulate in a period we never dreamed of living: the lockdown.
The chromatic contrast created by the director of photography Jessica Squillante, inspired by the colors of Andy Warhol’s screenprints, tends to emphasize with bright and unnatural colors a theme that is actually sad and oppressive, as in a natural mental defense mechanism.”
