Directed by Dan Tombs
Choreography & performance by Sarah Lewis

From the band:
"The whole conception, development and recording for The New Life was as insular as it gets but once documented and released to the world at large I’m very much of the opinion that you should give the songs their own legs and see where they go. This is why we’ve been very open for visual collaboration with previous videos and artworks and with the forthcoming remixes which we shall be releasing. Having been a fan of Dan Tombs’ previous work we were more than happy to leave him to his own devices. The New Life now in this format is no longer so insular. Dan’s direction and video manipulation coupled with Sarah Lewis’ performance, marry the hypnotic repetitive riffs and drum beats to a perfect jittering, hypnotic visual identity of it’s own."

From director, Dan Tombs:
"The video is one continuous take of improvisation. Shot in an old industrial textile warehouse, filmed with a single static camera. The image was post processed and manipulated live in one take recorded to disc, using a combination of digital video processing and analogue hardware to create a fluid rendering of the movement of the music and the dance. The intention is to induce a hypnotic state that compliments the track and captivate an audience."

From choreographer and performer, Sarah Lewis:
"Initially inspired by the minimalist art movement, ZERO, my movement explorations evolved into abstract physicalisation’s of distortion. I wanted to create a sense of lonely awkwardness and worked with simple repetitive movements with small and gradual changes. The result, I hope, is a lone figure, sometimes distorted out of recognition, finding her feet in a place of purgatory but leaving questions of how did she get here and where did she go?"

The tour also coincides with the release of a limited edition 12” EP, entitled The Next Life. With the artwork making a playful nod to Bowie’s new record, it will feature remixes by Factory Floor and David Holmes, as well as an exclusive new track  - more details to follow on the latter very soon.
