Corpulent Provocateur released new single Brown
On 13.3.2020, the Czech band Corpulent Provocateur released its second single, Brown, which was recorded at The Animal Farm Music studios in London. The song was released together with a new music video. After the success of their first single “Call Girl” (also recorded at The Animal Farm, whose music video has achieved tens of thousands of views on YouTube in a very short time, was played on thirty-five radio stations around the world and got to the top of the charts), Corpulent Provocateur continues to rock with a rhythmic song that reflects on the problems associated with alcohol addiction.
Outside Influence on the New Material
Last spring, the band took advantage of an invitation from Finnish producer and owner of The Animal Farm Music label, Ville Leppanen, and went to London. The main reason was to try a different approach to recording and get a new sound to complement their music. This attempt was successful and four songs were recorded, and it’s clear the band has taken a big step forward. An integral part of the process was the collaboration with Leppanen, who helped the band in the song-writing process over the two months prior to their trip to London.
The band also had help from sound engineer and co-producer Craig Smith, who worked with the band throughout the recording session. His experience, good ear and incredible work ethic (staying late each day and working on the material till the early morning hours) brought the songs to life.
Final Touches from the Famous Hafod Mastering in Wales
Thanks to Leppanen’s contacts, the final masters were made near Cardiff, Wales at Hafod Mastering (The Kooks,Euros Childs, etc.)
One Clip, One Shot
The first music video (for “Call Girl”), which the band released in October 2019, was filmed in one shot. Given the success, the band decided to do it again—but with a twist. For the second music video, everything isn’t what it seems. The video was made using motion control technology, which, combined with some clever post-production, gives the viewer the impression that it is one very long shot. However, as the music video unfolds, the viewers gradually realize that their eyes are playing tricks on them.
“Test and Loss”, the band’s forthcoming album, will be self-released in the final quarter of 2020.
