Covet Unveil Dazzling New Song and Video, “Nero,” Announce Sophomore Album
Instrumental prog enthusiasts Covet are back with a new single, “Nero,” to announce the pending arrival of their forthcoming sophomore album, Technicolor.
“Nero” has all the elements that helped Covet catch on so quickly in the first place — subtly dazzling musicianship, ear-worm worthy melodies and a proggy, vaguely jazzy sense of composition, all somehow housed within danceable grooves — and fittingly it’s also got a supremely fun video that features the band’s three members playing video game laser tag (with their instruments as weapons) in a junkyard.
Guitarist Yvette Young, who lends her vocals to two songs on the new album for the very first time in the band’s history, offers of Technicolor:
“There are so many textures and types of songs that it’s a new direction for us. Some of them have a nostalgic feel. Others can be quite heavy. Technicolor traditionally is a technique used to colorize old film. In the same spirit, we’re taking these sounds and developing them. The word encapsulates what we set out to do.”
Have a look below. Technicolor will come out on June 5 on Triple Crown Records; pre-order here.
