Sean Riley & The Slowriders announced they will be releasing a new record after a period in which the band members were were busy with other activities and artistic projects (including Afonso Rodrigues with Keep Razors Sharp).
“Dili” is the first single out of this new album, scheduled for early 2016 through Sony Music.
Faithful to the general tone of the previous record, “Dili” is a tense and stormy song about “distances, love and friendships” and despite the emotional burden the theme keeps a tamable and solar side.
The video, directed by Lee Fuzeta illustrates a reality experienced by the band during the 12 months Bruno Pedro Simoes spent in the East Timor capital dedicated to national radio (RTTL). In it, the Slowriders show that life always goes on, regardless of distance. Filmed in East Timor and Lisbon this video shows 8,700 miles traveled and many others lived in just 3 minutes of music.
Once more, Sean Riley & The Slowriders open path to new directions without ever forgetting the past or the origins, finding safe haven in the balance between their nature and discovery’s freshness.
