Two Tribes: Videodrone

London's Two Tribes bring an anchored set of tasteful influences to good use through their very lively and overall enamoring new single, Videodrone, which draws its title and theme from David Cronenberg, and its sound from the electro-punk-infused psychedelia of Primal Scream, and the more temperamental qualities of krautrock, as the song burns slowly and brightly for seven whole minutes.

"Videodrone deals with how the idea of a digital identity, over-stimulation from technology and the internet can perpetuate disillusion and desensitisation in the real world," the band state about the song's aim. "For some of us, the amount of information available can be a difficult thing to process sometimes, we wanted to explore in this song that increasingly blurred line between mind and mechanism. The title takes inspiration from David Cronenberg's 1983 film Videodrome, which carries similar themes about the cult of technology."

Videodrone was produced by Oli Bayston (Teleman, Honeyblood, Spiritualized, Boxed In). Two Tribes are Patrick Smith (vocals, guitars), Annalisa Iembo (vocals, synths and samples), Kim Engelhardt (bass) and Alastair Batchelor (drums, programming).
