Taken from her new album The Dog Don’t Hunt, out now on Itza Records, Addie Brik has revealed new visuals for one of the stand out moments of the album, Retromingent. Featuring dancers, animals wandering through, animations by Martin Obando and metal sculptures by Ross Spencer, its bubbles with the same creativity that infects the song.
Of the track, Addie says “Whatever people do or do not do to you along the way, if you can’t let go of that you’ll never get to where you should be going. So, there is Logos, the truth, not my personal take, or some lobbyist take on truth and I have a responsibility to think correctly and hold myself to higher standards, my future, heaven or hell, depends on it. People do what they do and will get their comeuppance. There’s a natural working order here that fulfils itself.”
Occupying territory somewhere close to the likes of Joan As Police Woman and Talk Talk, it has a gravity and deep sense of songwriting and melody that draws you in and let’s you invest in the emotion. Co-written with Michael Timothy (Massive Attack), it also features expertly metronomic percussion from Jim McDermott (Simple Minds / The Silencers), guitars by Robbie Macinosh (The Pretenders / Paul McCartney), plus the voices of a thirty-strong children’s choir from The Scottish National Youth Choir.
