Watch This! New Video By The Mighty True Neutral CrewWe’ve been giving a lot of love to Deathbomb Arc artists of late, including an 8 / 10 review for True Neutral Crew’s #POPPUNK album, a cheeky blend of hip-hop, experimental punk, electronica and genres that basically stretch your mind a bit. They’ve now got a new video out made with Venezuela’s Algodón Egipcio – check it out below.

TNC describe themselves as “an experimental rap collective”, a title which just about scratches the surface of their identity. Centered around Daveed Diggs (from clipping.), Brian Kinsman (ex-Foot Village), Margot Padilla (I.E.), and Signor Benedick The Moor, they’re collectively a band who we’ve covered as much as any other on Louder Than War (e.g. clipping. interviews and reviews, Brian Kinsman / Foot Village interviews and reviews, I.E. interview and Signor Benedick The Moor video premieres and album reviews.) So it only makes sense that we run a stream of their new video right? Right.

Here’s what the band say about the video:

While True Neutral Crew’s approach typically is cacophonous and upbeat, “Can’t Stop Loving You” is a genuine love ballad. Featuring Venezuelan singer Algodón Egipcio, the arrangement still embraces the group’s passion for post-punk and hiphop. But Algodón Egipcio brings a soulful quality to the song unlike any of True Neutral Crew’s other work. The gold on white visuals, from director Joshua Studham, play off this soulfulness to create something both ornate and simple.

It is what I believe they call in the industry “a grower.” So stick with it folks.

“A love song because there are never enough genuine love songs, free from the shadows with teeth.”


True Neutral Crew can be found on Facebook and Bandcamp.

Guy is a former full time member of the Louder Than War editorial team, who's since moved on to pastures new. Music's been a large part of his life since he first stumbled across Peel on his tranny as a fifteen year old. His whole approach to music was learnt from Peel in fact, which includes having as inclusive a taste in music as possible. Guy devotes most of his time looking for new music & although he's been known to say "the only good music is new music" he pretty much accepts this is bollocks. Favourite band The Minutemen.
