Dan Sartain: interview w/ Hero + ‘Walk Among The Cobras’ video premiere

28 Jan 2016

Dan Sartain - “the man mothers wouldn’t want their daughters within kissing distance of`” - walks us through his forthcoming album ‘Century Plaza’ in an interview with Hero Magazine, in addition to the premiere of official music video for ‘Walk Among The Cobras’! Read the interview and watch the video on Hero here.

Staring out from the cover with (non-artificially) blackened eye, paranoid android Dan Sartain goes back to the future for ‘Century Plaza’ – a new album of darkly nuanced electro-pop, released on 19th February 2016.

While Suicide and Alan Vega have long been acknowledged influences (a cover of ‘Wipeout Beat’ features) ‘Century Plaza’ finds Sartain trolling the British synth-pop wave of ’80-’84 – particularly Depeche Mode - for inspiration, opening the record with a funereal remake of ‘Walk Among the Cobras’.

Lead off track ‘First Bloods’ offers up further provocation, indulging a truly outrageous Van Halen-inspired guitar solo (notably the album’s sole concession to the instrument). You can sample this first taster track from the upcoming album, whilst it is being premiered over at the NME. Of Sartain, NME’s Matt Wilkinson says: “Glorious cult oddball Dan Sartain has been making Jack White about as corporate as Madonna for over a decade now.”

The remainder of the album involves crepuscular synths and metronomic beats which dominate songs like ‘Cabrini Green’ & ‘Feigning Ignorance’ – either could have been pulled off a Blade Runner or Escape From New York soundtrack in a parallel universe – while ‘First Bloods’ and ‘Black Party’ are pathological US teen anthems that serve Sartain’s particular brand of charisma especially well.
