Temposhark returns with a "gothy" video for their excellent new single "Bye Bye Baby." The song is taken from the group's new album, titled "Threads," which will be released February 2010. The song marks the return to Temposhark's beginnings with its emphasis on pulsating electronic beats and synths.
After singing that the "world does not revolve around you," Temposhark lead man Rob Diament wants to make sure the message gets across for once and for all. On "Bye Bye Baby," he is in full control with kick-in-your-face, snappy lyrics like "It's too late for me to care anymore. It's so over. In the palm of your hand no more." Yeah, you better not mess with Diament when he gets agitated like that.
The video was directed by Ben Charles Edwards who recently worked on the mini film The Town That Boars Me, which featured Kelly Osborne, Sadie Frost and Sophie Ellis Bextor. Rob Diament was eager to work with Edwards after seeing that film. "His style reminds me of hammer horror or Tim Burton or Ed Wood even," he writes me. "It was incredible to work with him - put some eye liner on and hairspray my hair up!"
"I really like the dark atmosphere created, it's a nice feel for the song, which even though sounds very pop and fun, is quite dark lyrically," he adds. (The single will be out on Monday. Download it here.)
