Long time friends of The Flag, Naked Lunch have ventured out with a video for new track Alone and we’ve been playing it to the crew for motivation.
For those of you who have had your ears glued shut forever, Naked Lunch are an electro punk band formed in 1979 and were an early 80’s act, consisting of members Tony Mayo, Paul Davies, Mickey Clarke, Cliff Chapman, Mark Irving and newest member, the exquisite Jet Noir.
Alone is dark temptress of a song, brandishing promises of lustful intrigue and then cutting you down like cold steel with it’s sharp melancholy, a classic electro rhythm with eery vocals to drag you deeper into the complex sound. It’s sexy, but not in an obvious way, like a mates sexy mum wearing a long dress to cover up around the naughty boys, you know there is a hint of wildness in there waiting to get out but it’s being kept back for now, teasing you, but you love it.
The video, directed and filmed by the amazing Pete Lankston of Hush Hush Media, is an artsy mix of live coverage and expressive, sometimes suggestive, scenes of a lady. It compliments the song perfectly by being mysterious and tempting.
I, of course, love everything Naked Lunch do and I hope this new era of creating great music is a long and fruitful one, we look forward to more very very soon. Catch up with Naked Lunch on their FaceBook page but for now here is the amazing video to Alone
