Maribou State release the new video for ‘Nervous Tics (feat. Holly Walker)'

Having just released their new album “Kingdoms In Colour” on Counter Records, as well as announcing their biggest headline live-show to date at London’s Brixton Academy on 7th March 2019, Maribou State today release the new video for their standout single ‘Nervous Tics (feat. Holly Walker)'

A “trippy ode to awkwardness and all things nervous” the video is directed by Hugo Jenkins, and is an exploration of neurosis and suppressed emotions. Each scene exploring the different ways that fear and nervousness can manifest themselves in the body and also in the imagination. “Repeated cuts are used to reflect on how repetitive and jarring nervous thoughts can be” says Hugo, "Interrupting the flow of the film in the same way this kind of internal monologue might interrupt a moment of calm”

The song itself is about "the low-lying panic of modern life” explains vocalist Holly Walker, "we’re all on our phones getting terrible news headlines vs. hyperreal Instagram images livestreamed into our brains, and it’s making us jumpy. This song is the realisation that no amount of mindful breathing or downward dog can replace some good old fashioned human contact and emotion.” Written over a number of writing and recording sessions in Berlin, Beijing, Hertfordshire, The Cotswolds and London, the track features a field recording running throughout of Chris and Liam in a music store in Beijing playing the Guzheng - a traditional Chinese stringed instrument. “It’s always felt like the Frankenstein moment of the album due to all the unorthodox parts that were glued together during the process” they explain, "but the end result was something that felt cohesive and exciting to us.”

Listen to the recent Maceo Plex remix of ‘Nervous Tics (feat. Holly Walker)’ here: - the first in a series of remixes set for release, from the likes of DJ Tennis, Adesse Versions and more to be announced.

"The Perfect End of summer soundtrack” - Q (4/5)

“An LP that drifts elegantly like high summer clouds whether sporadic and dreamy as on the misty-eyed ‘Glasshouses’, or on the hazy, Bonobo-style wig out of ‘Feel Good’” - Mixmag
