In case anyone forgot where Werner “Zappi” Diermaier and Jean-Hervé Péron’s roots lie, the faUSt co-founders make it abundantly clear on their new single “Lights Flickr.” Unlike the longer trips on their looming new LP Fresh Air, the track is three-and-a-half minutes of manic panic from cult singer Barbara Manning, rounded out by gritty locked grooves that keep it Krautrock.
Check out the song’s official video below, along with an album sampler and the following statement from director MuD (Muerbe u Droege):
The video asks for attention to the dance of life, art and work and to the privileges of Freedom and Luxus (Fluxus). At the same time: lights flicker as I blink my eyes to the beat to the beat to the beat. The world has become a swap-o-rama.
