TV Priest have previewed their upcoming album Uppers with a new single called ‘Slideshow’. Check it out below, alongside an accompanying music video.
“You know those days where you just move from screen to screen to screen?” TV Priest’s Charlie Drinkwater said in a statement. “‘Slideshow’ is about feeling mediated, manipulated, engaged, buoyed and repulsed in equal measures in our relationship to information, digital culture, and the algorithmic pace of 21st-century life.”
He added: “It’s a track that acknowledges that I’m a fully culpable participant in a behaviour ‘market’ developed by faceless tech which insists it’s the best thing for all humanity (as long as it can be monetised). And most of the time I LIKE IT (or at least tolerate it) while I scroll and scroll and scroll. I suppose all I can do is talk… On to the next one, content consumer…”
Uppers is set for release on November 13th via Hand In Hive. It includes the previously released single ‘This Island’.
