PREMIERE VIDEO: XYMOX - CALL IT WEIRD

TEXT T. COLE RACHEL

A CLASSIC GET'S REISSUED, A 17-YEAR-OLD FAN MAKES A CLASSIC. WATCH HER TRIPPY NEW VIDEO FOR 1983'S "CALL IT WEIRD," MADE USING FOUND FOOTAGE, JUST IN TIME FOR XYMOX'S TRIUMPHANT RETURN 

Formed in the Netherlands back in 1983, Xymox (formerly Clan of Xymox) would eventually become one of the most deeply influential synth-pop acts to emerge from that fertile decade. The band’s debut EP—the five-track masterpiece, Subsequent Pleasures—has long been considered a kind of gothy holy grail for record collectors, given that only 500 vinyl copies were ever produced. Thankfully the fine folks at Dark Entries are reissuing this lost classic, complete with never-before-seen photos of the band as well as liner notes courtesy of founding members Ronny Moorings and Anka Wolbert. Now lovingly remastered, the ephemeral darkwave of “Muscoviet Musquito” and “Going Round” sounds exceptionally pristine and gloriously gloomy, making this the perfect soundtrack for the lengthening of summer days and a coming season of practicing the dark arts.
