Video: Blue Foundation – Broken Life

Today Noisey premieres Brooklyn-based electronic/dream pop duo Blue Foundation’s new short documentary “Broken Life.”  The film follows Pepper, a charismatic homeless man living on the streets of California for the last 30 years, and is soundtracked by the band’s music.  This past Monday, Blue Foundation and Noisey also premiered the music video for “Just a Hand” featuring a cameo from Pepper. The track is from their forthcoming album, In My Mind I Am Free, out May 22nd through their own imprint, Dead People’s Choice Records. The video is an excursion through the streets of Los Angeles and New York on skateboard. Best known for their songs “Eyes on Fire” (certified double platinum in the US) from the “Twilight Saga” and “Sweep” from Michael Mann’s “Miami Vice,” the band released their first 7″ via Moshi Moshi Records and their first, self-titled debut album was released shortly thereafter. Their songs have also appeared on the TV series “The O.C.,” “So You Think You Can Dance,” “CSI:Miami,” and “The Cleveland Show.”

New track: Clock Opera – “Lesson No. 7”

In contrast to their previous release, “Belongings,” the band’s new single “Lesson No. 7,” is an intense and aggressive cut that portrays Clock Opera’s depth and diversity in their song craft.  Along with Guy Connelly’s powerful vocals, the ferocious synths, punchy bass, explosive machine-gun snare and frenzied guitars give “Lesson No. 7” a contagious and relentless energy that makes standing still impossible.

Clock Opera will release their Lesson No. 7 EP on October 3rd on Moshi Moshi / Island Records.

Included on the EP is “Seven Hours,” having already given a glimpse of their varied influences and abilities with their singles to date, “Seven Hours” heads in a completely new direction again and displays a gorgeous, emotive beauty that is becoming a signature in their sound.

Alongside these 2 new songs, there is a very special world first to complete the package.  After the critical acclaim of his long awaited 2nd album, Tom Vek lends his unique production expertise to remix another artist for the very first time.

Clock Opera has been steadily building a reputation as purveyors of cerebral, original and utterly captivating music over the last year.  Alongside their single releases on Kitsune and Moshi Moshi, they have supported the likes of Yeasayer and Everything Everything on their UK tours and received rapturous acclaim from their live performances at SXSW and most recently Field Day festival in London.
