Marco, Ryan, Tori and Matt are Aussie pop dream team, Retiree. Making music inspired by Talking Heads and Nile Rogers, it comes chilled and laden with super sweet tropical melodies. Brought to our shores by Bradley Zero of Rhythm Section International, their latest EP This Place is a joint effort with Sydney's Plastic World. A triple threat, the EP's trio of tracks are brilliantly varied - a portfolio spanning everything from post-punk to relaxed funk. Very much into the record, we're more than pleased to present the premiere of the title track's visuals. Set to the sounds of chill vocals and magic bass, cue blood splattered surfaces, corpselike bodies and ritualistic dance routines in the dark of the steam room. Directed by VIOLA BLACK and supported by INFRINGE, with Alfred Thirolle wearing the Director of Photography hat, it's time to get your creep on.
