Featuring members of Man Is the Bastard, Sleestak, Unicorn, Slowrider and more, Geronimo is a trio hellbent on exploring the uncharted regions of sound with no centralized theme and "vague in terms of its conception, intentions, and processes."
Today the band unveils the new video for "Obsolete," a vaguely ambient track that evokes Mica Levi's utterly terrifying Under the Skin soundtrack before taking a violent mid-song left turn with the abrupt addition of off-kilter vocal samples, bass and drums.
Head-scratching yet also satisfying and well executed, the video — created by artist Displaced/Replaced — conveys a similar sentiment, with abstract shapes crossing the screen until the theme changes and we catch the band in action (at the 3:45 mark). Unexpected? Totally. Interesting? Absolutely. Look for the band's new LP, also titled Obsolete, due on May 31 via Three One G (order yours).
"The misanthropic sound itself is designed to question the shameful / shit-assed gilded-age state of affairs," says W.T. Nelson (Man Is the Bastard) of Geronimo's approach. "[The] idea being if you bang your head against the wall long enough, you start to see things."
