0171 'Change Nothing' as they unveil new EP
Words: Sam Geary
Hackney-based pop newcomers 0171 - aka producers/singers Joe Bedell-Brill and Georgie Hoare - have followed the earlier drops of 'Follow' and 'Photograph' with the title track of their new EP, ‘Change Nothing’.
All three appear on the EP, released last week, and which is streaming below.
“'Change Nothing' is a song for the times you sit staring at a wall, and see days stretched out in an uninspiring line," say the duo of the gritty electronic track, where percussion twists around elongated synth motifs and pop-leaning vocal lines. "But, as with all our music, there’s a kind of defiance in it as well. It’s you and me versus the sadness. It’s you at my side, trying to keep our heads up. The sound is aggressive - the message is not about giving up, it’s about shouting in the darkness.”
