Deafkids Fuse Tribal Beats & Industrial Noise Together For “Espirais da Loucura” Music Video [Brazil]

The Brazilian trio Deafkids are an experimental act that mesh elements of harsh noise, industrial, punk, and world music to create a rather unique and abrasive yet hypnotizing soundscape. This year, the group released their third LP, Metaprogramação, via Neurosis‘ label, Neurot Recordings. Recently, the band unveiled a music video for one of the tracks, “Espirais da Loucura.”

In regards to the video, Deafkids stated: “‘Espirais da Loucura’ illustrates the desperate layers of absurdist madness in its inner and outer aspects – cloistered witnesses in fields of agony – the inner war between our own personas and desires. In its outer aspects, it reflects the chaotic confusion of our daily struggles in socio-political realities, where present and future are being written in hopeless and dystopian lines by this fascist and corrupted misgovernment we are currently living in Brazil.”

You can check out upcoming tour dates below as well as the music video for “Espirais da Loucura” which offers an alluring contrast between what the primitive drum beats and the more modern distorted, punk-fueled riffage and noises.
