Unloved today announce details of their new LP, ‘Polychrome’ due for release on February 24th.
Today the band share the album’s first single, “I did it”, accompanied by a video choreographed by Jack William Parry.
Parry says: “In my head, each song Unloved produce has a very clear movement style and physicality, even if not overtly. There is always a mood that doesn’t need articulating, you just feel it. Like when you feel an atmosphere upon entering a certain space. So, upon first hearing ‘I Did It’, I knew exactly how it should look.
“Together, Jade & I discussed the films ‘Viva Las Vegas’ (1964, Ann-Margret/Elvis Presley) & ‘Bande à part’ (1964, Jean Luc Godard); both of which use very simple social dancing to enhance the story. The great thing about dance in a social setting is that you are seeing movement being exercised in raw form, and all walks of life being united through it. That’s why it ties perfectly into the track- instinctive and honest ambition; self assertion; dancing with joy but not needing to prove it otherwise.”
Unloved front woman Jade Vincent says of the single:
“Simply put, “I did it” is an affirmation of achievement – and that deserves to be celebrated. (Yeah, you did it. She did, she did.)”
Polychrome: painted, printed, or decorated in several colours.
‘Polychrome’ starts with a murmur of percussion and a metallic grind, as if the in-house band on a space station were warming up for the last show of the night. As phased vocals zoom through the heart of the track, “Polychrome” builds and builds to create a swooning hypnosis that’s part Tropicalia, part BBC Radiophonic Workshop and part psilocybin swoosh. Disorientating, strange, compelling, “Polychrome” is the opener and title track of Unloved’s first album of 2023.
