The Norwegians in the red jumpsuits are back! Their new album Red comes out later this year but various other tidbits have been surfacing lately. A few months ago the Kissy Sell Out remix of the lead singe “Give It Up” came out to some confusion because nobody had heard the original. I was pretty stoked on it but was holding off judgment for the original. Well, last week the video for album version of “Give It Up” came out and for many it was our first true glimpse of Datarock 2009. You many have stumbled across that video in the TBE TV box (up on the right) and experienced the raw awesomeness of Datarock meets “Bad” meets Romeo & Juliet. I really hope this amped up energy and tighter song-crafting are indicative of Red as a whole (Not to mention that hot-ass album art). Their debut had its highlights (below) but was mostly forgettable, whereas “Give It Up” hits harder and tighter and weirder than anything before it. It’s not easy to mix Romeo, Mercutio, a Tony Robbins-esque pep-talk and enemas in under 2 and a half minutes.
