Vancouver-based indie pop duo Rococode have released a new video for “Panic Attack”, a new track from their forthcoming album, Don’t Worry It Will Be Dark Soon, out February 26th. Watch the video below.
Rococode recorded the songs for Don’t Worry It Will Be Dark Soon at the same time as the Panic Attack EP in an fairly unconventional way – in a cabin, off the grid, in the isolated coastal forest of British Columbia. Rococode shared their cabin/studio space with producers Caleb Shreve (Phantogram, Bear Hands) from New York and Ted Gowans (Tegan and Sara, Fences) from Los Angeles and the foursome set to work on music that shared none of the characteristics of their rustic surroundings. Together they arranged an army of synthesizers, guitar pedals and drum machines into tight, crisp Alternative gems that sparkle, shuffle and shake at every turn. The title of the album also sparked inspiration when recording the new songs; the phrase comes from between song banter at a Radiohead show Andrew attended as a teenager.
“The daylight was kind of busting the vibe for most of the show and Thom Yorke kept saying, “Don’t worry it will be dark soon. Everything is gonna be fine. It will be dark soon,” the band says. “It kind of rattled around in my brain for 10 years and then we wrote the tracks, thinking about the comfort that the nighttime affords. It feels like a time where there is room to breathe and be ourselves. Throughout the writing of this record we were dealing with some difficult personal battles. The writing and recording was very cathartic and very much helped us grow through some turbulent times to arrive at a more comfortable destination.”
