Keeping up with our premiere week, we got the awesome guys of Semaphore who are back with the release of their new single and visuals for “Unreliable,” the first single from Semaphore’s new album Leave With the Season EP. It follows their 2017 album All Too Robot. It was self-recorded by the band and mastering was completed by Alan Douches at West West Side Music (Converge, Chelsea Wolfe, Animal Collective). The band has a EP release show on Wednesday, February 27 at Saint Vitus in Brooklyn, NY (tickets).
About the song, the band comments:
“Unreliable deals with the central themes of our upcoming album: lack of trust in ourselves, our friends and the city we live in. If all these things work harmoniously, they could bring us happiness, and yet they are so often the things that fail us and leave us dejected. Central to the video is the old tale of how the prevalence of technology should make us feel closer to one another but instead amplifies loneliness.”
“For filming, our DIY approach worked well, and the slow-mo scenes of breaking the phones and burning the subway cards all took place at my apartment!”
