Dropbunny has released a new video for the track "There's Nothing Here And It Screams," which can be viewed below. The band also commented:
"The song is an attempt to recreate the music experienced independently by both bassist John Barrymore, and vocalist Xero. In Barrymore's case, he awoke completely paralyzed on three separate nights, with deafening, complex and terrifying music in his ears.
"He was trapped in that position for what seemed like hours, before the music slowly faded and he found himself able to move again. Xero's (much less frightening) experience was of finding a radio in a dream which played hypnotic music that 'kept rising out of almost white-noise, before descending again.' Finding that both of them had heard almost identical music, the band set out to make these sounds a reality.
"The filmclip features a re-imagining of a medieval southern Indian ritual which appeared in Frazer's 'The Golden Bough.' It combines extremes of hilarity and horror." More...
Melbourne seven-piece dropbunny has announced the band's second album will be titled "IO." The band commented on the album:
"Mixed at the award winning Woodstock Studios (Coco Rosie, Augie March, John Butler) by Cameron Trewin, and mastered by metal heavyweight Ue Nastasi (Slipknot, Strapping Young Lad, Clutch), this 18 track epic is darker, stranger and more confronting than anything the septet has released to date.
"Continually pushing their musicality to new heights, dropbunny supplement their crushing guitars, mind-bending rhythms and roaring vocals with violins, sitars, xylophones and electronics, including ad-hoc instruments made from rat traps, fish tank motors, and a power saw. This combines to make a furious yet eerie psychotropic landscape that explores the darker side of the human psyche."
The band has also released a four track preview of the album at this location. "IO" will be available from January 28th across Australia, as well as through iTunes, bandcamp, and the Dropbunny website.
