Every weekday, DIY’s new music know-it-all Neu brings you one essential new release to get obsessed with. Today’s Neu Pick comes from White Room.
The madness of White Room is less a glint-behind-the-eyes and more hooks-in-eyelids, bloodshot horror. Lacing their riffs-to-the-front rock with a psychedelic tint, that otherworldly edge takes the fore in their new video for ‘Freaking On’.
Recorded at Paul Weller’s studio on invitation of the big man himself, there’s an almost classic-rock edge to proceedings, taking the fuzzed up immediacy of INHEAVEN and dragging it into the swamp. Backed by red-light imagery of back alley brawls and drug-addled clown, it’s a warped look at modern mundanity.
Get the first look at the ‘Freaking On’ video below - taken from their storming debut EP ‘Fizzy Liquid’, it comes ahead of a massive spring run:
