Everything Everything have dropped their brand new single and everything isn’t supernormal…
Titled ‘Supernormal’ the new track is a cut from the same sessions as their most recent album Re-Animator, and is accompanied by a nuts video directed by the band’s frontman.
Along with new music comes the news that the band have rescheduled their UK and Ireland tour to Spring 2022. Kicking off at Nottingham’s iconic Rock City on March 31st, the tour will see Everything Everything travel the country before wrapping up the tour at London’s Roundhouse. Remaining tickets for the tour are available to purchase now.
Speaking about the video, Higgs explains: “At this point I’d learned texturing, modelling, rigging, animating, how virtual cameras and lights work, so the path to creating ‘Supernormal’ was a matter of putting it all together, alongside some new experiments in physics simulations. The idea was to make dozens of tiny, explosive shots of action, ugly and extreme naked characters being distorted, surreal objects and animals, over-saturated colors, bright lights; all these impossible, grotesque images coming at you far too fast to comprehend. I adjusted and experimented until I saw things that excited or disgusted me, then repeated the process over and over again until I was satisfied.”
“‘Supernormal’ is about supernormal stimuli,” he continues. “Highly exaggerated triggers that create a stronger reaction in us than evolution ever intended. Our animal brains can’t help but reach for the bigger, brighter, tastier, sexier, bloodier, more intense experiences. I wanted to create an extremely overwhelming experience in this song and video, it’s about being a slave to our instincts no matter how extreme they become.”
