Odd Beholder "Disaster Movies" (Daniela Weinmann, dir.)

Odd Beholder - Disaster Movies

"Disaster Movies" is a comment on our decadence and our destructive consumerism. Weinmann speaks about the track:  "Two protagonists recall their teenage nonchalance, how they used to wish the whole damn town would burn down. They are now standing on the site of an actual catastrophe. Now that a monstrous flood has swallowed the entire town they don't feel an inch of glee. Disappointed in their own premature disillusion, they feel like they have entered one of the disaster movies that they used to watch. What they quickly realise is that it doesn't feel heroic at all. Instead everything seems dull and impractical, and terribly frightening."  Sonically, "Disaster Movies" is rooted in bouncing arpeggios, it’s like a synth-pop soundtrack to a monstrous calamity unfolding in slow motion. The neon veneer of digital pop is being shredded before us by the brash reality of nature exhausted and drained.
