When a publicist sends you a new Suede video, the decision to post it is an absolute no-brainer, because Suede is the shit. If you’ve ever seen them perform live, you know what I am talking about. In this understated video for the transcendent, minor-chord anthem, “Outsiders,” Suede live-animates the cover of their eponymous, 1993 debut album in an underwater, four-minute slow dance that remains entirely engaging for its duration, despite being nearly static, visually. Well played.
Aurally, “Outsiders” is Suede at their very finest. Brett Anderson sounds like he’s been frozen in time for 22 years, and Richard Oakes‘ guitar playing is just insane. So great.
Night Thoughts will be released on January 29th, 2016 via Rhino Records/Warner Brothers. Enjoy!
