PHÈDRE | In Decay (Video)
Here’s a new video for Phèdre’s “In Decay”, a single off the band’s upcoming self-titled Daps Records release. The song is a fun and clever bit of bait-and-switch, with a jangly happy-go-lucky dance rhythm playing underneath a crazy narrative of lovers getting capped, dances in decay, a T&T explosion over tea, and a slew of lovers laying waste. It’s really quite playful and inventive. It feels like an ocean-side 80s track: “Wasted bodies, lying oh so still / So many lovers, in need of organs / He couldn’t help himself, / The lonely neighbor, invited him for pies / Three words, between her thighs / Well in search of him, his lover barged right in / A colt 45, cold done them right in / Lovers in the dust / Dancing in decay …” Note: Lyrics are unofficial. The band is the trio of Daniel Lee, April Aliermo, and Airick Woodhead. — David D. Robbins Jr.
