EXCLUSIVE VIDEO PREMIERE: New Way Vendetta – “Love In Quarantine” 

Modern post-Punk/New Wave disciples New Way Vendetta (Electric Frankenstein, Christian Death) have dropped a hypnotic video for their killer new track, the gloriously creepy “Love In Quarantine’ which we are debuting here at Ghost Cult! The track is from their new single release Love: Light (“Love In Quarantine” b/w “Light As A Feather (Stiff As A Board)”) out via Mosquito Hawk Records. This is the second virtual 7″ single from the upcoming Rites Of The Black Mask full-length coming in 2021. For fans of Gothic dance-punk, “Love in Quarantine” scratches all the familiar itches of the dusky club days of the early 1980s. The slinky track is heavy with anxiety building riffs and vocals and reveals a slick multi-faceted approach to writing. Which shows influences, but next copies them. The video, especially the old medical footage will unsettle you in places, which is a nice mix with the upbeat, but not a happy song. The track is available for purchase on Bandcamp, Spotify, and iTunes today, so watch the clip now and support this rising act

 

Chad Wells (Vocals, Synths) commented:

“Everyone in New Way Vendetta is committed to social distancing and following best protocols for staying safe during these weird times so we recorded everything separately in isolation and then we shot the video separately as well. What better place to guarantee a bit of social isolation and distancing than in a couple of old cemeteries? We also thought that it would be a poignant backdrop for a song about fighting our deepest urges to get back to the world of full physical contact. A whole history of goth, postpunk, punk, metal and emo videos has normalized wearing masks and gloves and eyeliner in cemeteries – but we felt that these old tropes carry an even more refined visual symbolism in current times. The video is loaded with symbolism ranging from some pretty obvious sign language to stuff that might take a little more sleuthing and attention to detail to sort out. A spooky little social statement just in time for Halloween as well as one of the scariest election days of all time.”
