"My name is Euros Childs and I am a solo artist..."
That's the opening sentence of the press release which accompanies Euros Childs' new album 'Situation Comedy'. It's a simple, factual sentence - but also one that contains a hidden truth.
There really is no one like Euros Child. When he describes himself as a 'solo artist' he's quite correct since few others can approach his idiosyncrasies, his willingness to move beyond strandard songwriting fare.
'Situation Comedy' is set to be released on October 21st, but ahead of this Clash is able to premiere a new video from the Welsh songwriter.
'Tête à Tête' is reminiscent of a Polka, with its odd syncopation married to some utterly whimsical vocals. The lyrics, though, are full of hidden dangers with Euros Childs warning that "there are bodies underneath my ice rink..."
Singing directly into the camera, Euros Childs has flour and eggs thrown at him, until he ends up in a soggy, proto-cake ridden mess.
Watch it now.
