Spousal duo Fox & Bex (also known as Love Command 0), are gearing up for the release of their upcoming debut album, Integration, with the single, “Guilty (Release the Wolf)” as a sneak peek for what’s to come. To commemorate, they are also rolling out their first music video which has the feel of a house part in taking place within a spaghetti western in space.
Tinted in an undeniably 80’s filter, the video features a diverse array of zany characters: swamp monsters, biker gangs, vampires, and much more. Each one acts a direct reference to iconic 80’s television and movies like The Lost Boys, Star Trek, Swamp Thing, and more. All the pulp fiction goodness you could ask for in a weird and wild dance party with a killer soundtrack.
Musically, the song synth on top of synth on top of synth, and it is glorious. The whole experience between the musical composition and the accompanying visuals gives off campy 80’s vibes that are extravagant and over-the-top. Within the myriad of references, there are plenty of interactions that feel rooted in a fascination with the human psyche. Almost like a dark version of The B-52’s “Love Shack” if they were more outwardly psychoanalytic.
“Guilty (Release the Wolf)” is available on major streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music. The accompanying music video is also available on YouTube. Find this and more new music on our Alchemical Multigenre Mixdown playlist on YouTube and Spotify.
