Watch Clark delivers a solid set of tracks in the form of his new EP titled ‘Backscatter Effect’. While this may be something to tide the masses over until the next full-length album, ‘Backscatter Effect’ is a full-throttle ride with 5 distinguishable singles that grab you where it counts and demand a listen. Digital decadence.
Check out our other Watch Clark features:
With ‘Backscatter Eﬀect’, Seattle electronic musician Watch Clark begins the ﬁrst of a trilogy of planned EPs for the year 2020. A fast follow up to 2019’s full-length album ‘Couch’, ‘Backscatter Eﬀect’ i a ﬁve track rush of songs about politics, love, friendship, and the way all three often go horribly wrong.

@ACTORStheband Every industry has a crew of vocal folks who purposefully spread misinformation because it thins out their competition.

“Our media cycles are spinning faster and growing more intense,” states Paul Furio, the musician behind Watch Clark, “and I wanted to put something out that both captured that essence while also capitalizing on the same phenomena.” The opening track, ‘Toxic Friend’, is a dark foray into a relationship gone sour, where trust turned into something cruel and ultimately corrupting. ‘Propaganda Works’ counters with an uptempo beat and sardonic lyrics that bemoan the current state of political inﬂuence. Track three, ‘Pretty Pictures’, oﬀers a statement on the dark side of the world of Instagram models. ‘Anger Is Your Drug’ is a Punk inspired dive about the types of people who have poor impulse control, followed up by the pulsing analog tones and driving kick drum of the spoken word track ‘Consider the Titanic.’
Watch Clark will release a feature video for the second track, ‘Propaganda Works’, shot and directed by Paciﬁc Northwest company Inﬂuence Media. Other music videos are planned in the coming months. ‘Backscatter Eﬀect’ will be the band’s fourth release since their premier album in 2013.
