Mega Emotion – “Uncomfortable” (video)

28 Jan


In the past, on one of the many occasions we’ve talked about the psychedelic electro freneticists Mega Emotion, we termed their music ‘chaos pop’. It was a term that felt right at the time as they blitzed us with their high octane blur of noise and colour. Times change though, people grow and develop and over time we find ourselves mellowing out a… Ah who are we kidding? Mega Emotion is back with a new single and video and it they are just as wonderfully anarchic and vibrant as ever.

The only hint of mellow really is the rather lovely harmonies from Lisa and Jan as Ian alternates between slightly intense and very intense in his vocals. The synths repeat and pulse like a strobe light set to ‘full on fit’ and the beat crashes as if played by a military drummer on acid.

There is a video too (which you can watch below) that features trippy patterns and fractals projected over them and onto the wall behind. It was made, brilliantly, by each band member taking it turns to ‘tit about’ in front of the camera. The result is, like Mega Emotion themselves, kinda crazy but very enjoyable.

Mega Emotion – “City In Shapes”

10 Feb

Mega Emotion City In Shapes

When we first featured Mega Emotion last year, we talked about how they would blow your pre-conceptions about sleepy Norwich completely out of the water. Now, having been tipped for big things not only by us but by the likes of John Kennedy (and he knows things he does) they are back to melt your mind once more with another stormingly frenetic piece of electronic chaos-pop.

Taken from their forthcoming debut EP Fake Feelings, “City In Shapes” is like eating popping candy that’s been made with dynamite rather than pressurised and gassified carbon dioxide (free science lesson for you there). It’s a blue light emergency of a track, whooping and blaring all over your face as it speeds along the streets, forcing other more sedate songs to the side of the road as it screams past. A heart mimicking kick drum arrests into tachycardic synths and guitars race with urgent vocals convulsing with energy and power. Doom laden riffs set in as the track whips to its destination, then harmonious vocals of peace give brief respite until its final violent silence.

It’s a death defying ride to salvation, or otherwise. Regardless, it’s another fantastic offering from a fast rising Norwich band coming to take over the world.

”City In Shapes” is available to buy now and a limited edition cassette of the ‘Fake Feelings’ EP will be released on 15 April.
