Static Dress return with "crying"

15 May 2024, 12:26 | Written by Tyler Damara Kelly

Static Dress have returned for their first taste of new music in two years in the form of a brand new single, "crying".

“The video for ‘crying’ explores several themes of the song’s lyrical character, revolving around taboo topics presented as a battle between the sacred and the profane. Rather than focusing solely on striking presentation and the visual stimulation of colour and design, we ask the viewer to travel through multiple scenes, all with their own subject matter; guilt and battling with self-loathing, mass corporate manipulation, capitalist horde mentality and weaponised lust," Olli Appleyard says of the new single.

"We hope to provoke further questions and conversation with this piece, aiming to push the boundaries of our own storytelling and visual presentation in a way that exhibits the growth we’ve experienced in recent years."

Following the release of their 2022 debut album, Rouge Carpet Disaster, the band signed to Roadrunner Records, and unveiled a 2023 release of the album’s Redux version; a fully fledged reinterpretation of the project that saw each track exist within parallel universes while featuring contributions from the likes of Loathe, Creeper, World Of Pleasure.

"crying" is out now via Roadrunner Records.
