“Amnesia” by The Vacant Lots
The Vacant Lots are today announcing their fifth studio album Interiors and sharing a video for the lead single “Amnesia”. The Brooklyn-based minimalist post-punk/synth-pop duo includes Jared Artaud and Brian MacFadyen. Their forthcoming album drops on October 13th via Fuzz Club
Recorded over many sleepless nights and amphetamine-fueled mornings in the project’s isolated Brooklyn bunker home studios, the album follows the band’s minimal is maximal aesthetic coalescing into dark bedroom anthems for loners and lovers with nods to 70s/80s punk and nightclub music ala Joy Division, Iggy Pop’s The Idiot, Depeche Mode, and New Order.
On the single “Amnesia”, Jared Artaud says “It’s about dealing with duality and integrating the conflicting feelings within a relationship. It’s about feeling dissociative and getting burned by the fire. Then coping with how this inevitably leads to the dissolution of the relationship. This is a mantra for all the songs on the album.”
Longtime supporter of the band, and godfather of punk, Iggy Pop premiered ‘Amnesia’ on his BBC 6 Music show and has said of the band, “The Vacant Lots are a terrific recorded band. They’re great.” The single is released alongside a video created by Alexander Schipper and starring model and actor Mateen Ismail.
