Following in the footsteps of French duo Daft Punk is an outfit from the same part of Europe that also lives and breathes funk music. Dissident are relative newcomers to the scene but their energetic blend of pop and funk is sure to quickly win them fans. Last week they released their first single ‘Brothers’, a groovy melange of guitar, keyboard chords, drums and tambourine. Though it’s easy to pick out the influence of acts like Nile Rogers in the song, Dissident have undoubtedly given their sound a unique edge. It is a sound you’ll get better acquainted with on their debut EP ‘Family Affair’.
For now you can feast your eyes and ears on the new video for ‘Brothers’. It tracks the movement of two music-loving extra-terrestrials as they travel from their junkyard home to the games arcade, to the tattoo parlor, to the music shop, to the club, to the studio and then back to the scrapyard.
