New Order have released a gritty, 80’s inspired video accompanying their latest single ‘Singularity’, which has been lifted from their new album Music Complete.
New Order, the upbeat new wave outfit that rose from the ashes of post-punk superstars Joy Division, have released a brand new video for their latest single ‘Singularity’. The video works to contextualise the densely emotional lyricism of the song- it’s a fast-paced collage of footage taken from B-Movie: Lust and Sound in West Berlin.
The video displays the significant contrast between the cities’ atmosphere in the years proceeding, and then the eventual fall, of the Berlin Wall with authenticity. As Rolling Stone Magazine puts it, ‘[the] assemblage of gritty, grainy images of people in West Germany rioting, dancing and getting naked before the fall of the Berlin Wall’ certainly has a very raw and emotionally driven power to it.
Music Complete is currently available via iTunes and Spotify here.
