Watch! Everything Everything – Cough Cough
There’s lots of easy jokes to be made about a band with a double word for their name releasing a song with two of the same words, as well. Lazy lazy and unoriginal unoriginal come to mind. But if you’ve listened to some of the Mercury-nominated work from Manchester’s Everything Everything, you will note they are pretty original musically.
The band have returned with their first video from their upcoming January 14, 2013 release, Arc. The song is Cough Cough and might start off a touch annoying, but goes into interesting soundscapes and rhythmic patterns. There’s call and response, icy synth, heavy percussion sections, and a lot of other stuff thrown at the song. And it doesn’t sound like a complete mess. Check out the band performing in a bright, orange glow, leading me to believe it was filmed in the centre of the sun.
