Long Legged Creatures team up with Joshua Zero for iconic release ‘Antistar’
Leeds based electronic meets noise-rock outfit Long Legged Creatures join forces with singer-songwriter and long-time collaborator Joshua Zero for new single ‘Antistar‘.
A twisted techno number that screams punk sensibilities, this track is a big middle finger up to society, technology and life as we know it.
Immediately stealing your attention and refusing to be skipped, the opening line ‘Let’s cut this hyper-real, cyber-real bullshit baby and work on what you love’ commands your gaze.
A clear indicator that this collaboration doesn’t stand for any hatred, ‘Antistar’ is like Wolf Alice’s ‘Play the Greatest Hits’ but if they went techno.
Joshua reveals that the lyrics were in part inspired by Guy Debord’s, Society and the Spectacle, as well as social media trends, found in people’s news feeds.
Zero counters, philosophically by promoting a mindset free of societal and technological “insignificant chatter”. The kind that pulls us further from“working on what we love”
AntiStar is a sign-of-the-times offering, seeing both sets of artists at their best.
As for the music video? Entirely captivating.
