Eli Brown‘s popularity is largely founded on subversive activity. Brown’s alternative approach to production draws Dance Music’s elite into his darkly-hued atmospheres, pushing them into uncharted territories. Bringing dark, ethereal sounds to the fore of his own work, Brown’s alternative approach to production draws Dance Music’s elite into his darkly-hued atmospheres, leading them into uncharted territory. Eli Brown welcomed an emerging act establishing a genuinely formidable force to the fold with his most recent track ‘Trouble,’ with South London post-punks Talk Show joining him for a snarling clash of cultures. The optical expression of this midnight-hued environment is presented today by Eli Brown and Talk Show.

The stark visuals of ‘Trouble‘ present an ominous setting set in sullen tones, using a gritty style influenced by iconic British filmmakers such as Alan Clarke. A mystery suspense following members of the audience, including Harrison Swann from Talk Show. Each of the visual’s characters is mysteriously pursued by an unseen force before being engulfed by Eli Brown’s own aesthetic world’s unrelenting gloom, which consumes each of them in a sinister finale. The song’s punk-inspired electro, complete with propulsive synths, an unending percussive line, and a deadpan vocal, is perfectly complemented by the video. Rather than playing off of each other’s strengths, all acts up the ante, with Eli Brown injecting acid-laced potency and Swann snarling vengeful declarations over the track’s ominous atmospheres. The music, which is both euphoric and pummeling, is a perfect clash between cultures from an intrinsically uncompromising artist taking one of the UK’s most impactful new acts into his realm.

Trouble‘ echoes the template laid down by pioneering Bristolian electronic and punk bands such as Massive Attack and IDLES, building on their hallowed recipe with ease, matching each other’s sonic ferocity with unflinching intensity. The latest clip for ‘Trouble’ is an explosive example of putting two unstoppable entities of their own worlds together, resulting in a video that is almost as impactful as the track itself.
