Dutch rock band Iguana Death Cult shares their highly anticipated LP Echo Palace, following the release of three stellar singles, "Oh No," "Pushermen," and "Sensory Overload," with praise from outlets such as DIY, Under the Radar, American Songwriter, Paste, and more.
Alongside the release, the band additionally shares a music video for the record's focus track, "I Just Want A House," described as a "funky millennial nihilist anthem."
On the track, the band wrote: "O the trouble we've found ourselves in! Young people are struggling to find a decent place to live, summers have gotten so hot that vast areas of land are turning into scorched earth, not only is there a patch of plastic in the ocean the size of Texas, apparently we swallow a credit card's worths of microplastic per person every week. Human greed has pushed us to the limits of existence. But since we wrote this groovy dancing song about it, we're probably not even close to being scared enough."
Continuing on the track's accompanying video, they wrote: "Because we were playing shows in the UK, we weren't able to work on this video ourselves, so we gave Hache complete freedom to make what he wanted. He joined forces with his actor friend Nol Klis and artist Helia Rafi, who made the 3D render. 'The idea for the video was about somebody trying to run away from the city and decided to live in the forest by himself. But you can't run away from yourself!' says Hache. I think it covers the message of the song very well since it's about having trouble keeping up in a rapidly changing world and the desire to have a place of your own."
