Trailer Trash Tracys share Video For ‘Siebenkas’

Trailer Trash Tracys share Video For ‘Siebenkas’

Last month, Trailer Trash Tracys broke their five-year silence with the announcement of their sophomore album Althaea, which will arrive August 11th via Domino imprint Double Six. Today, the London duo are happy to share the albums second preview ‘Siebenkäs,’ which you can listen to below.

Building on from where lead single ‘Eden Machine’ left off, ‘Siebenkäs’ continues the exploration of Asian tonal scales and Latin percussion and showcases singer Susanne Aztoria’s signature dreamy vocals. 

Trailer Trash Tracys’ Jimmy Lee on the video:

The narration for the video was supposed to be a rivalry between people who represent the moon, and people representing the 'tiger', which features prominently in Philippine folklore. The video, however, has parallel meanings. Not to give too much away, we kept the narrative loose. The moon in the video could metaphorically represent knowledge (represented by the illumination) or something more spiritual. In fact, I liked the idea of the moon falling to earth, and people passing it around like a toy.

I was initially influenced by a scene in Woody Allen's Sleeper film in which a group of hedonists enjoy a futuristic drug shaped like a ball. I wanted to echo some of the political issues surrounding the death penalty for drug users in the Philippines as well.

The video was shot in various locations around Manila - a lake, a cave, rural roadsides and remote areas - and features various artists I befriended - the Hernandez Brothers, Nika Dizon, Keren Oo, Juluis Valledor, Cenon III and Mavs.

Althaea is available to pre-order now on limited heavyweight green vinyl, CD, and digital download.
