Marking it’s release this week on London’s Rhythm Section International and Sydney’s Plastic World, Retiree share the final instalment of the three part video series accompanying their new EP This Place. Filmed in London, the video was directed by Viola Black and sees ritualistic dance routines and vampiric lounging taking place in a misty steam room.
Drawing from the leftfield avant-pop of Arthur Russell and Talking Heads, progressive disco of Nile Rodgers and contemporary ambient electronica, Sydney four piece Retiree channel these through their own pervasive aura of rum-drunk antipodean sunshine. The result is music that is in equal parts lush, thoughtful melody and meditative tropical rhythm.
This Place EP is released worldwide June 22nd on 12” vinyl and digital.
