Sept. 29 — Independent pop punk act Odd Robot premiered its new single and video this week.
The band debuted its new single, ‘Anti-Revolution‘ and the song’s companion video Friday. The song is featured in the band’s forthcoming album, Deathmates, which is due out this fall through Wiretap Records. The album’s official release date is under consideration.
The song’s musical arrangement is a catchy pop punk composition whose instrumentation and vocal harmonies make it fully engaging and entertaining. It is the kind of composition that could easily be imagined on any college rock radio station.
No information was provided about the song’s lyrical theme in the news release announcing the premiere of the new song and its video. No lyrics were provided with the video, either. From what can be understood the lyrics would seem to hint at the theme being a social commentary. That is just this critic’s interpretation.
Speaking of the song’s video, it features band member Andrew Burris and guest vocalist Poli Can Dam (formerly of the Bombpops) playing the part of astronauts who have landed on an “alien” planet. The pair conducts a series of experiments but things don’t go as planned, leading to some frustration and less than happy feelings (not toward each other, though).
