WARNING: This video gets gets pretty graphic from the 1:40 mark.
Noise rockers HEALTH are back with 'New Coke', the first single from their third album Death Magic, and it's definitely won me over, but maybe because it seems more straight forward and welcoming than their previous efforts.
The night time shot rave/running music video feels pretty fitting, as it's definitely one for the early hours. Also, given that I first discovered the band through a Crystal Castles remix of their track 'Crimewave', things come full circle with a split second cameo from Alice Glass.
I caught the LA band when they supported Interpol back in February, and to be honest, their abrasive live set was somewhat lost on me, especially before the suave and sophisticated nature of the headlining act.
Death Magic is out on 7th August 2015, via Loma Vista, and will be the band's first studio album since 2009's Get Color. They did also compose the majority of the Max Payne 3 Soundtrack back in 2012, and the closing scenes of 'New Coke' actually feature a clip of their song 'Pain' from that very game. I've included it below, just in case you wish to listen to the full track without the image of people vomiting.
