Tropical Fu*k Storm drop clip for new single ‘Soft Power’
Alternative supergroup Tropical Fuck Storm have dropped their new single ‘Soft Power’, alongside a horrifying music video.
The confrontational-yet-crazy single vocalises political messages with the support of crunchy, atonal guitars and heavy, electronic samples to create an aggressive backing.
From the opening lyrics “Hey, hold your fire man, don’t shoot / Here comes the umpa lumpa with the nukes”, the Australian-based band manages to create an accurate portrayal of the overwhelming dread and antipathy of this moment in history.
The chaotic clip matches the track’s distortion, noisiness and experimental characteristics with terrifying costumes, masks and makeup to add to the atmosphere.
‘Soft Power’ is the second track in Tropical Fuck Storm’s series of limited edition, double-sided, 7-inch singles and gives listeners an exciting glimpse at their forthcoming debut album, scheduled for release in 2018.
You can catch Tropical Fuck Storm live at Sydney’s Lansdowne Hotel (Nov 25), Melbourne’s Gasometer Hotel (Dec 1), or next year at the 2018 Golden Plains Music Festival.
