A rare gift appeared today at No Fear of Pop, where Manchester's leading depressing YouTube-makers, Money, premiered their video for "SOLONG (GODISDEAD)." As always, the visuals deeply evocative, artfully montaged from repurposed scenes of eroticism and violence. Here, the song's story of a heartbreak so tough it disproves god is rendered even harsher by re-filming the video on their computer screen with an iPhone, as if love's memory is so fragile and overflowing it needs double-preserving. These guys cut to the core nearly every time. "SOLONG" features on a new Money 7-inch out May 14th via Almost Musique, up for preorder now.
