Naytronix has released a new video as well as a remix ahead of his upcoming UK shows.
The musician, better known as Nate Brenner of tUnE-yArDs, performs at London’s Shacklewell Arms on 28 November 2015 as part of an extensive European tour in support of his latest album, ‘Mister Divine’.
Ahead of the trek, seductive psych soul track ‘Back In Time’ has been given the visual treatment by director Jeffrey A Tang, who’s crafted a clip that plays on the musician’s sentimental lyrics (“Time is tricky ‘cause you only get a single play, not like a record you can throw on every single day”).
The song’s also been given a new funk-laden twist by Money Mark, best known for his work with the likes of Beastie Boys, Beck, Karen O, and Red Hot Chilli Peppers.
‘Mister Divine’, released last month on City Slang, was conceived in tour buses, hotel suites, and basement studios while Brenner was touring the world as bassist for tUnE-yArDs. A collision of dub, funk, minimalist new wave, jazz, hip hop, and lots of electronics, the album is built around his bass, his voice, and drum machines, marking a departure from the funky party dance anthems of his first album, ‘Dirty Glow’.
Since the release of his 2012 debut, tUnE-yArDs have taken Brenner around the world, including a stop at Carnegie Hall and performances on shows like ‘Later… With Jools Holland’ and ‘Austin City Limits’. He’s also been able to record and perform with Yoko Ono and Sean Lennon – and take the Naytronix band around the US and Europe.
Now he’s back. Apart from his London show, Naytronix will be performing in Birmingham, Bristol, Leeds, and Brighton. For more info visit www.naytronix.com.
