Autogramm, the synth-driven, power-pop trio from Chicago and Vancouver have premiered a new video for their latest single, I Am A Situation, created by Berlin film maker and artist Dana Tucker (Peaches/Saskia Hahn). With this and the new album, No Rules via Nevado Records, on its way, The Fountain caught up with the band o discuss music and plans.
TF: You have a new single out, what has the reception been like to I Am A Situation?
C.C: Yes, it’s the latest video and single we’re pushing from our new album No Rules. People seem to really be digging it. Plenty of press and radio giving it attention both at home and abroad.
TF: And can you sum up the track in one sentence?
The Silo: I was thinking about how a person’s life can appear from the outside to be so settled, ideal, in the right place, while on the inside they may be struggling, drifting, gone awry.
TF: What was the process like for filming the music video?
C.C: I Am A Situation, created by Berlin film maker and artist Dana Tucker (Peaches/Saskia Hahn). The video echoes the sentiment of the song’s despondent lyrics. We originally wanted to have friends from all over the globe filming parts in their respective cities, but we ended up asking people to delay their parts due to the virus. We were surprised and delighted that Kim and Dana filmed in Berlin regardless.
TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year?
C.C. We don’t have much planned other than finding a label to release a 7” of our newest recordings.
TF: When can we next expect a live show from you now that venues and gigs are kicking off again?
C.C. In the new year we’ll be in Southern California in February, The Midwest in March and Europe in Summer. Hopefully something in the UK / Scotland too!
