Pere Ubu returns with their signature experimental rock sound in this new video for the second song featured on their upcoming album Carnival of Sounds, 'Golden Surf II'. The video combines film of the Ohio band on tour and award-winning videographer Roseanna Freedman's zoetrope footage. The eclectic mix of visual images works well alongside lead singer David Thomas' howling and the accompanying distorted music.
Carnival of Sound is all set to be the band's 18th album in a career approaching 40 years. Their previous release last year, Lady From Shanghai, was well received by critics. Following the new release in September, the band will be touring the UK and Spain in November, as well as also appearing at the French L'Etrange Festival four days after the album's release. Golden Surf II's dramatic difference to the previous single, Irene, suggests that this album will contain a strong range of styles for the artistic rock band.
