Young UK BTW frYars, aka 19-year-old Ben Garrett, aka the man with the olive eyes, has a new pull-out-the-visual-stops-’80s-style video for “Visitors,” a song featuring Dave Gahan on backing vocals. The Depeche Mode man also makes a dark, venetian blinded appearance in the clip. The song’s the first single from frYars’ forthcoming Dark Young Hearts, which you can expect in a few months. It follows two EPs, The Ides and Perfidy and interestingly, despite a bit of hype, Garrett opted not to release Dark via a standard record label: He’s putting it out on his own frYarcorp (with funding from Bandstocks, where you can currently download the single). More of that in a second. For now, the video.
If you hand over your email address you can download “Visitors” for free at Bandstocks. It’ll be out physically 3/2 b/w a remix by seminal synth pop producer Stephen Hague. You can hear the single and remix at frYars’ MySpace.
Dark Young Hearts is out in May via frYarcorp.
