Brighton’s DITZ Reveal New Video For Latest Single ‘Role Model’ Out Now

3rd July 2020

Fast-rising Brighton noise-rock band DITZ are pleased to reveal a brand new video for their latest single ‘Role Model’, which is out now on all good DSPs.

Commenting on the video, the band say: “The birth of this track and everything associated with it has been an experiment for us. We recorded it in Leeds, away from our usual studio and producer in Brighton. The video was made by our usual collaborator Jay Bartlett during lockdown. We took a hands off approach and gave him very few cues. It gave us an opportunity to react the same way a fan might on first viewing. In giving him that freedom I feel like we gained some freedom of our own.”

On the message of the song, vocalist Cal explains: “‘Role Model’ is about peer envy, which I think is something that most artists suffer from. It’s a horrible trait that stops you from being happy for other people and leaves you with a skewed perspective of what you’re making and its original goals. Sitting back from what you’ve made is the only way to see it the way you’ve intended.”

Picking up praise from Loud & Quiet, So Young Magazine, DORK, Gigwise, DRAB Magazine and more—alongside an addition to Spotify’s Alt. Rocked. playlist—the track is the latest to be taken from their debut EP, 5 Songs, released on 12” vinyl via Alcopop! Records on 3rd July 2020

The collection will be the band’s first physical record and also includes previously-released singles ‘Seeking Arrangement’ (Permanent Creeps), ‘Gayboy’ and ‘Total 90’, as well as their limited edition cover of Peaches hit single ‘Fuck The Pain Away’, previously only released on a decomposing peach. 

The record will be available on luxuriant pink and black 12” vinyl, limited to 500 and never to be repressed in the pink. Preorder now: http://www.ilovealcopop.co.uk

Shortly before lockdown the band stormed their way into the Glastonbury 2020 Emerging Talent Long List and are steadily gaining pace at radio with support from BBC Radio One, BBC 6music and Radio X, with their no-holds-barred, hardcore-infused approach to post-punk setting them wide apart from their contemporaries.
