The beats of the music enhance the acid rave style of the video, with distorted effects and RGB Glitch. The drawings are inspired by the No Vax propaganda, questioning the efficacy, purpose and composition of vaccines. It’s a stroboscopic journey, as if vaccines were comparable to drugs and their hallucinogenic effects.

“Hearing the song for the first time, we imagined a frenetic fluid that carries machines, pieces of human bodies and carnivorous plants. When presenting the idea to the band, Thom told us about a dream that made him write the song. We believe the video is the conjunction of these two things.”

Today, Montreal’s bilingual queer pop icon Maryze shares her much-anticipated debut album, 8 on Hot Tramp Records. 8 explores the interconnected parts of our past that shape our lives for the better or worse. Like the infinite looping of the number 8, the album observes how we repeat cycles and exist within pre-written narratives. Can we cut loose from toxic histories knotted tightly within us while still honouring our ancestors? How do our coping mechanisms protect us and how do they hold us back, rooting us to events we wish to grow away from? Maryze weaves together songs with themes of intergenerational family trauma, mental illness, identity, sexuality, ruptures, forgiveness and acceptance, performed in both English and French. Teaming up with other queer artists like Margo and Backxwash, and debuting her first self-produced tracks, she experiments with genres that have influenced her life, from emo and hyperpop to Celtic folk. Offering both maximalist electronic production and stripped-down ballads, 8 introduces Maryze’s modern electronic alt-pop, calling listeners to consider the roots and knots that exist within each of us.
