Co-Premiere | Clive Tanaka :: Neu Chicago (video)
The mystery behind Clive Tanaka y su orquesta goes beyond the name; it’s built into the music itself. Going from his usual, almost robotic sound to a distorted, underwater gentleman in “Neu Chicago,” Mr. Tanaka is tough to identify, and his debut release, Jet Set Siempre 1º, is just as elusive. Clive says “Neu Chicago” recaps the tale of astronaut-returned-home, Buck Rogers, and Colonel Wilma Deering, who’s been waiting for him her entire life. Though it may explain a few of the lines, it’s still a pretty curious song. In the above video for “Neu Chicago,” creator Brandom Domer didn’t try and capture the semi-tropical essence of the Jet Set highlight, but created something entirely different — growing foam animals and all.
