“LET’S BE INFAMOUS”
The past couple of months has been a productive period for RECLAIM VIENNA. Inspired by recent cummings and goings and restricted in how they can work, the Retro Futurists have managed to produce 2 outstanding singles in quick succession, each track taking them to different extremes of their style, outside their usual territory. Their unscheduled and unexpected “lockdown” pop single “MODERN TIMES” is now followed up with the far darker ‘INFAMOUS’ – which is released in physical and digital formats on 10th July, accompanied on CD by MODERN TIMES and reworkings (don’t say remix) of earlier releases ‘COOL WITH IT’ and ‘PARIS’ by Producer and collaborator on INFAMOUS, Ben Booker (aka Auricula).
Lyricist Danny Smith on the new single: “INFAMOUS is about people trying to excuse any wrongdoing. Its about people’s inability to apologise. Not to sound like Elton John and for ‘sorry to be the hardest word’, but people don’t do it. Politicians don’t do it. Blind faith and tribalism is ever present in today’s society. People should say sorry more, but they don’t. They stick to their guns even though they know it’s wrong.
