2004 was the year after Massive Attack released ‘100th Window’, also known as the period where people stopped caring about Massive Attack. Well, PILLS are looking to make trip-hop interesting again with ‘2004’, the A-side of a 7″ they’ve put out on Beko Disques, a label that has been hurtling through legendary Australian releases and doesn’t even exist in this country.
They’ve got a video to go with that fits the drowsy, neon comedown of the song as well, a gold-embedded party that we’ve always wanted to go to, but never got invited to. It’s the kind of drowning ‘n’ drugged atmosphere that manages to intoxicate and liberate at the same time. V. V. V. good stuff.
