Following the release of their third studio album UGLY on Friday via Method Records/Interscope Records, the UK forces of nature have shared a video for the album's opener, "YUM." Not for the faint of heart, beautiful images of crowns and owls capture the song's driving force and disturbing panic attacks.
The album's highlight is "Yum," the Ugly and slow Thai closing track, and producer Dan Carey's next, deep entry into the record, along with production by Zach Nahum. Slow Thai covers everything you need from complex thinking when writing a video track.
"More coke, more weed, more E, more travel," he sings on his industrial techno masterpiece. Slowtay has stopped smoking and drinking too much, but his cravings won't go away. "I say, 'Um,' that's what people want from me, but it's getting me nowhere. I've been willing to throw everything away, but it's holding me back—more, more, never enough."
To celebrate the album's release and follow a short run of six gigs in local pubs and smaller venues across the UK, he hosted an UGLY pop-up shop at London's Truman Brewery this weekend.
Teaming up with Raw Trade, he greeted fans in-store all day Saturday, signing copies of UGLY and releasing exclusive t-shirts. Merchandise records are featured as well as music videos and artwork such as Stokes from Nothing Great About England and Boris Johnson's severed head removed from a bag during his performance at the Mercury Music Awards.
Following his Mercury Music Award nomination and critically acclaimed Nothing About Britain and his second album TYRON , he takes a fresh look at the story of Britain's most exciting musical talent.
