INNER CODE Ebrace The Darkness With ‘Nuovi Incubi’
Nuovi Incubi (by Italian group Inner Code) is a door to the fears of tomorrow, the horrors of yesterday, that gloomy everything that is reflected and renewed in every present moment. It leads us to the discovery of the modern obscurities that besiege the human soul, while echoes of the historical past arise between electronic darkness, a dark warning of the insecurity hidden in the future. The emotions of man, his thirst for revenge against an oppressive existence, dim rays of light in a devastated scenario.

PSYKHI RELEASES LATEST SINGLE AND VIDEO SEE ME CLEARLY
The track conceived by Psykhi, filmed by Peter Spanjer sees the upcoming artist at his most vulnerable. Speaking on the track Psykhi says “See Me Clearly is a song exploring my vulnerabilities and the importance of self love. Retrospectively understanding the need for personal healing and self-assertion.My authenticity is fallible, if I don’t value and love myself then I can’t possibly love outwardly in a healthy way. I wanted the video to continue exploring the inner conflicts and or uncertainties within myself through visuals inspired by Emmet Kelly, an American circus clown from the depression era (1930s). There is something about his makeup, the simplicity and authenticity of his character in which I see elements of myself. Wearing his white face allowed me to inhabit a version of me that has always sought to please others and who entertains the world with my sorrow. I hate feeling sorry for myself.”
