OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
NEWS PROVIDED BY
Nottingham UK 3-piece The Barnum Meserve have announced their forthcoming album ‘Designs’ which is set for release on Friday 30th September. The news comes with the second slice of the album in the form of new single ‘Roleplay’. A pulsating new single that constantly thrives off of its rhythm and its ability to pull on emotions at every corner.
“When I wrote the lyrics, I wanted people to interpret it as a sexual song which it completely isn’t. In some sense I wanted people to be led down the wrong path regarding the meaning of the song when in reality, Roleplay is about being someone you're not to please others around by playing a fake persona yet feeling uncomfortable in your own skin because of it.” Explains the bands frontman Leon Wiley.
Digging deep into the music video of the track film director Fraser West mentions,
“This one is a dark look at people's relationship with technology, through the eyes of a 'cam girl’. Looking at the dark side of the web and how things can go too far…Who really is watching... And are they that far away?”
Roleplay follows on the cinematic single ‘Gaslight’ that opened up the bands journey towards their upcoming album ‘Designs’. The album will feature 14 incredibly well-crafter tracks that started off as an experiment with synthesisers and arpeggiators, taking a completely new approach than before and making a massive leap forward.
