The Greeks’ new album “Native To” is out on 13th June 2011. Their latest track “Is Tropical” is a fast-paced Tarantino-esque track from the Greeks combines a twanging rhythm guitar and echoing vocals.
The group enlisted the help of Megaforce to create a controversial video showing the imagination of a group of boys playing soldier in a French suburb. The clips are extreme and somewhat grotesque, but the group insist that the video is not a commentry on politics or society:
“Don’t get carried away by politics – this is a straight-up kid brawl the way it played out in your head when you were stealing your mums mascara to be like Arnie in Predator. It isn’t a shocking rebuke to our drama queen, populist news culture either – just naive, blissful shoot-yr-mate until he’s definitely dead war-games – the way you wish it still could be.”
The track has been remixed by Moonlight Matters – aka Sebastiaan Vandevoorde – who has remixed Moby, Gorillaz, Keane, Ali Love and Findlay Brown.
The Greeks will officially release the new album at the following parties in Paris and London:
- 8th June 2011, Point Ephémère, Paris
- 17th June 2011, w/ Yuksek, Jupiter, Icona Pop – XOYO, London
