Premiere: DaDa – ‘Black Horse’

Psych-rock trio unveil debut single...

London-based threesome DaDa have served up the incendiary video to their first single, ‘Black Horse’; a dark and seductive antiwar tirade that rages somewhere between the visceral punch of Pixies and the fuzzy rush of At The Drive In.

The band – James Schiavone (vocals, guitars, synths), Manuel Crisci (bass) and Ryhan Lovell (drums) – release the track on June 10th via independent label Black Wire Music, introducing the world to their bold and challenging vision.

“The song is about one of the most recurring sins of mankind for centuries, that we believe is simply a proof of how as a species we still have much to learn and come to,” DaDa say. “Whilst technology, architecture and science evolve at a frenetic rate, the depth of our thoughts and feelings as a collective don’t. We keep chasing that individualistic and capitalistic philosophy of being, often supported by the feeling of incapacity to change and ensure change.”

“However,” they add, “DaDa believe change is possible. ‘Black Horse’ speaks about war and tries to describe war and the psyche of men that do not know what to believe in anymore because they have forgotten their purpose and forsaken their ideals becoming killing machines. All the good intentions carried in their chests dissolve over time and sink in the shadows of routine and the nostalgia for home, hiding in the remembrance of childhood.”
