New Release - "Repeating" by London's Talk Less Say More
Updated: Apr 6, 2018
Shropshire-born Matthew Jennings, releasing under the moniker Talk Less Say More (TLSM), has been characterised by a dauntless affiliation with musical experiments since his early years, frequently blending pop, ambience, krautrock, techno and hip hop elements. The artist, who sees himself as trying to fashion a 21st century take on the artpop canon that includes Kate Bush, Bowie, Eno, and Talking Heads, has released visuals for his latest single “Repeating", one of the tracks from his album Bonfire Night, the conclusion of his Three Birds album trilogy.
Reminiscent of the surrealism of David Lynch, TLSM's “Repeating” depicts the highs and lows of human essence, combined with a healthy does of absurdity. Interestingly, in the chorus it references the star of Peep Show Mark Corrigan’s cult passage reassuring the listener that, despite all of life’s insanity, he is still “living a normal life and no one can prove otherwise”.
The video (watch below) is co-produced by Blake House Filmmakers Cooperative. According to the visual creatives, the production process was stripped of any pre-existing inventive concepts and relied on the intuitiveness of collective play, enabling an authentic transmission of the track’s intensity and feel onto the visual dimension.
TLSM’s latest artful wry pop project is filled with treasures to be discovered. Inspired by Italian painter Caravaggio as well as existentialist philosopher Søren Kierkegaard, the project's numerous references to philosophy and physics makes for a thought-provoking experience.
