Berlin based art-pop / electronic trio Bodi Bill are poised to announce a brand new release with the arrival of ‘Be Sure’, lifted from their forthcoming album due later this year through Sinnbus Records.
Drawing on a myriad of influences from Pop, Indie, Electronica and Ambient soundscapes, ‘Be Sure’ conjures an alternative reality fused with rhythmic experimentation and offbeat melodies. The band say: “‘Be Sure’ deals with relationships on the line. Take Elon Musk’s neura-link vision of the future, which evokes the questions if human interactions will be more a matter of calculation than feeling. How can we be sure about our relationships with you? It’s quite a dystopian perspective. The song went from being rather busy to rather spacey, we tried to minimise it to the elements that are absolutely necessary.”
About the video: “The point of the video was the idea of uploading and downloading someones’s identity into the cloud. Some sort eternal life. It opposes sleeve death to actual death. The antagonist is returning, and the showdown you see in the very beginning will probably happen over and over again. In an way, that the video is the start of a small series, several parts that refer to each other. It’s all about parallel worlds, what is real, what is simulation, what is reality, what is memory? We’ll face some fundamental changes within the next decades. And that’s as fascinating as it is frightening.”
Following a hiatus of seven years, Bodi Bill returned in 2019 with a series of acclaimed releases ‘Kiss Operator’, ‘What If’ and ‘Better Than Reality’, offering a continually evolving approach to their music. ‘Be Sure’, is the first release of 2021 that sees Bodi Bill continue their foray forwards heralding the arrival of their new album in the later half of the year.
