Birmingham, England’s Johnny Foreigner follows the success of this year’s breakthrough Mono No Aware LP with a non-album single, “Flooding.” According to Brookyln Vegan, it is “a frantic pop song that has a ton of stuff going on: yelpy male/female dual-vocals, mathy rhythms, tons of dynamic shifts, and more.” The fast, catchy song is being released as the second single from File Under: Music‘s One Song At A Time video series.
Announced earlier this month with the release of Skye Wallace‘s “Not Ready For This To Start,” this biweekly series of music videos for unreleased tracks for artist from Canada, the UK and the US, including Pill Friends, Wallgrin, Slime Girls, Wallgrin, and Crywank. Created by Jacob Tomlinson, the video that accompanies “Flooding” is a vibrant and colorful space exploration clip with a mixture of drawn and stop-motion animation.
“The British punk band Johnny Foreigner’s songs often seem made up of components of older emo and pop-punk songs, but remembered wrong, reversed and compressed into anxious nodes.” –Pitchfork
“Effervescent indie-rock.” -DIY Magazine
