South London-based noisy alt-rock band, videotapes., released their latest track called “streetlights” on January 23rd. This rockin’ tune was able to follow up from an EP that was released in 2022 titled “forest/fire.”
“Streetlights” was able to have a rich introduction with instrumentation that was powerful and atmospheric. With strong vocals from vocalist Flo, any instruments involved – such as the guitar (Ollie), bass (Jon), and drums (Jack) – were able to set the tone, creating a sound that not only made it balanced but also exciting and interesting. As the track continues to progress throughout, videotapes. are able to give their intended audience a glimpse into their sound and how they are able to share their music with them, as well as those who are wanting to find a band that is willing to make listeners get up out of their seats and dance.
Speaking of “streetlights,” it has been said that this song is inspired “by the Somerset House exhibition “24/7” on the non-stop nature of modern city life, and addresses the depression and dull monotony of dead end office work.”
If you’re looking for a band that provides catchy, rockin’ tunes, then videotapes. is your go-to band. “Streetlights” seems like a real promise as the track provides lyrics that every listener is bound to listen to, as well as a sound that is willing to get everyone on their feet and grooving in no time as the melodies continue to get melodic with every word and sound as the song continues.
