Rotterdam post punk five-piece Tramhaus have announced details of their forthcoming debut album, The First Exit, alongside the lead single, "Once Again".

The track comes paired with a music video by Peter Marcus, one that utilised a random number generator to compile the hoards of untitled videos that uploaded to Youtube during lockdown in 2020.

The band explains: “As an ode to the absurdism of the digital age we are living in, this music video highlights the peculiar phenomenon of people uploading uncut videos to YouTube without giving it a title or context.The result is a quick paced experimental documentary short of seemingly unrelated footage on which the audience can project their own associations, making it that the meaning derived from it may differ per spectator. It is art in its barest form, as aesthetically speaking there is no real value to it. It is like a story without text, a film without a script. It solely exists on our innate ability to create our own stories with whatever we have at hand.”
