Mastersystem – the new project from members of Frightened Rabbit, Editors and Minor Victories – are set to release their debut album ‘Dance Music’ on 6th April through Physical Education.
Scott Hutchinson said of the album at the time: “This is not the angst of a teenager, however. This is the anxiety of a man in his mid-30s, and for a lot of this record I found myself wrestling with the ways in which I am not quite doing life right, in spite of appearing to lead a relatively joyful, playful and artistic existence”.
Earlier this month they aired a video for ‘Notes On A Life Not Quite Lived’ and now they’re back with another clip, this time for ‘The Enlightenment’, a fuzzed-out slice of heavier alt-rock. Fittingly then, the video itself is a slightly murky piece, showing off the band performing but often shot with slightly distorted close-ups, shaky motion or with grainy filters that give it a quality that’s as gritty as the track itself.
The band are also set to head out on a UK tour in April and May, which will see them head to Manchester, Newcastle, Glasgow, Leeds, Birmingham and London. Tickets are on sale now.
