Scream Quietly by REVOLUTION ABOVE DISORDER








The solo project of Dubliner musician Stephen Nicholas White (The Orange Kyte, Magic Shoppe), now Vancouver-based, provides a dreamlike blend of post punk, dreampop and psychedelia through a new cover of the Television Personalities song Scream Quietly from the 1982 album, Mummy Your Not Watching Me (sic).

White's version of the song projects darkness and despondency while being more atmospheric compared to the original's rawness. The song was produced at Jacknife Sound in Vancouver, BC, by Jason Corbett of ACTORS, and its psychedelic/kosmiche aesthetic is brilliantly mapped using excellent mixing and instrumental adeptness.

Stephen Nicholas White says: "The lofi outsider-art indie-pop of Dan Treacy’s Television Personalities occupies a place in my heart all of its own. Stylistically all over the map, Treacy’s four decades (and counting) of off-kilter demonstrations of punk and psychedelia are held together by the emotional depth of the songwriting and the vocal delivery, which sees Treacy careering unconstrained from acerbic, to playfully whimsical, to heartbroken and vulnerable. Beautiful."
