Static Dress cries

2024-05-15 by KillingMoon | 48 Comments
Emo-post-hardcore band Static Dress have released their new single "crying", accompanied with a new music video.

Frontman Olli Appleyard describes:

“The video for ‘crying’ explores several themes of the song’s lyrical character, revolving around taboo topics presented as a battle between the sacred and the profane."

“Rather than focusing solely on striking presentation and the visual stimulation of colour and design, we ask the viewer to travel through multiple scenes, all with their own subject matter; guilt and battling with self-loathing, mass corporate manipulation, capitalist horde mentality and weaponized lust.”

Static Dress will be opening for Underoath live this year, see link below for tour dates.

Would replace half the songs on RCD with this. They get better with every release.

It didn't floor me, but was on par with the weaker songs from Rouge, so still good.

Definitely not groundbreaking but I think it's better than every song off RCD that's not Fleahouse, Push Rope, Courtney, and Lye Solution. Maybe Disinter too.

That's what's up. Now we just need a middle ground on Taking Back Sunday, Enter Shikari, Finch, etc.

my takes on those bands are pretty fixed but hey theres plenty of time to realize that nothing is true / say hello to sunshine / tidal wave are their respective peaks!

uhhhhh for tbs maybe louder now could be a middle ground do you like that album bc i fuckin love that album lol

I don't mind saying SHTS is Finch's peak even though I like WIITB more, but it's the hate WIITB gets that I take umbrage with around here.

Flash Flood is peak Shikari for me but The Spark and whatever their last album are called are their misses for me. Nothing is True is a great album.

I'll never get on the Tidal Wave train though. I dig Louder Now a lot and New Again has some great songs along with Winter Passing as a b-side. WYWTB is peak TBS in my eyes but I've got 4 albums out of them I can listen to at any time.

yeah the last shikari is a little boneless. ive made a bit of peace with it but its far and away their least essential. i wish i could get more into flash flood tho its mid stretch is GOATED but it is too wubby that it feels dated to me. thermometers through warm smiles though i am WITH you

wiitb is okay its just not what i want from them lol. think its a hard album for me to warm up to because the history of the band generally shafts shts and its up to the fans to have to emphasize that it is actually really good. burn j feels a lil low on personality to me in comparison but its def solid

i know re: tbs i am just crazy tho lmao but i will wave my flag high to make up for that nobody else will

WIITB and TOCS were my first two post-hardcore albums that I was aware of (I listened to The Used, Thursday, Coheed, and Brand New before that but they weren't screaming in the same way) so WIITB is always going to be on a pedestal for me. Literally a life changing album and I have a ton of nostalgia for it.

Thermometers through Warm Smiles is the fuckin shit though. I will say I think Rat Race EP is the best thing Shikari has ever done but I wasn't counting it since we're looking at the full lengths. Everything from the band was top tier from 2007 through 2015 so that's a hell of a run for me. The other songs on Flash Flood did take a bit longer to grow on me but I love them all. Always gonna support the boys though. I've met them all a few times after shows and they're nice as hell and always excited to talk about what they're cooking up.

In typical Jay fashion I have already listened to this about 30 times and it just sounds better and better with every listen.

Fuck I love this band. Their music vids have always been amazing too. Really hope they get some more mainstream recognition with the upcoming TOCS tour. Should be sick.

TOCS was the first post-hardcore album I ever listened to. I got into screaming within music because of that album. I dig this new single.
