Kenton Slash Demon has returned with their punchy new single “Peace”. Released via Future Classic, the video was directed by Jenna Mangulad. The track is far removed from the starkness of some of their previous tracks; “Peace” has a more pop oriented sound but doesn’t sacrifice the duo’s inventiveness.
Discussing the video, Jenna Mangulad said:
"The inspiration for the ‘Peace' video came from old black and white horror films. I love the dramatic theatrical vibe in the acting and the way that they frame the pictures. It communicates with the audience with a childish naivety and a sense humour that I really like. When I heard the track, I thought that it had a similar dramatic vibe to it, both in the instrumentation and lyrics. Combining that old style with the modern way of thinking music videos was a lot of fun…”
The single follows on from the duo’s lauded Harpe/Syko and TT/Dok EPs.
