Published Feb 19, 2021Getting a head rush? No need to check your blood pressure — that's just "Head Rush," the latest single from Vancouver glam rocker Art d'Ecco.
The song channels Art's signature, Ziggy Stardust-esque swagger, as a toe-tapping rhythm is laden with crunchy guitars, brassy blasts and a splash of sci-fi synths. In a press release, the songwriter explained, "It's a song about the head rush of our youth. Nostalgia is a powerful drug, it distorts and reframes the past, often reconciling our memories into one place for easy access and to better suit our current disposition or state of mind."
In the accompanying video, Art and his backing band run through the song against a black background — a retro style that's reenforced with some colour-tinted filters.
Art d'Ecco's album In Standard Definition is out April 23 on Paper Bag Records. Check out the new single below.
