We were already a fan of London based, Newcastle born Will Archer, aka Slime and the stuttering indie/electronic soul of his track Hotdog, but even more so now we’ve seen the brilliant Daniel Brereton directed video for it. While the track saunters along, full of echoey layers of vocals over a soft, shuffling accompaniment, the video is more vibrant – featuring the travels and travails of a solitary human hot dog through the beautiful British countrysie. Soaked in a good amount of pathos, despite it being, well – someone in a Hot Dog suit, it somehow makes it a perfect accompaniment to the insular loneliness of its soundtrack.
Archer has also announced details of a show at London’s Hoxton Courtyard Theatre on September 2nd are on sale now. Tickets available HERE
Hotdog is taken from Slime’s forthcoming full length release ‘Company’, out on August 14th via Domino Records imprint Weird World. It’s due to be available on CD (WEIRD051CD), LP (WEIRD051LP), Deluxe LP (WEIRD051LPX) and Digital (WEIRD051D). The Deluxe LP is heavyweight coloured, off white vinyl and comes with a bonus CD-R mixtape of original material by Slime. You can pre-order the album via Dom Mart HERE or iTunes HERE. Pre-orders will feature 2 instant grats – Hot Dog and My Company.
