Dense + Pika are Smooth Like Honey for Striking Dystopian Video

Caviar's Maxim Kelly directs the slow-burn techno spot with Matthew Dear

Dense + Pika are Smooth Like Honey for Striking Dystopian Video

Maxim Kelly has teamed up with Dense & Pika to create this striking dystopian video for lead track ‘Honey’ featuring Matthew Dear off their debut album release ‘Colour Burn’.

As Dense & Pika, Alex Jones and Chris Spero have garnered an enviable reputation for making devastating club ordnance that finds the sweet spot between dark, mysterious house and roaring, brawny techno. With over a decade of material under their belt, Jones and Spero have just released their first studio length debut album ‘Colour Burn’ along with the unmissable accompanying video for lead track ‘Honey’.

‘Honey’ features the master of sensual, slow-burn techno, Matthew Dear whose vocal contributions to the track bring a breathy, brooding ensemble of spoken word that glues perfectly with the duo’s trademark rough and textured sound palette.

The accompanying video places Jones and Spero as the omnipotent creators at the helm of his fictional dystopian and surrealist world.

Maxim adds: “For Dense and Pika Ft. Matthew Dear, I thought I would keep it simple and make the music video about everything. It’s a creation or Genesis story in three minutes. From Big Bang to Garden of Eden to Apocalypse. A parable which takes us through the principal political ideologies of our times. Concluding with a compelling theme or moral: “don’t guzzle the honey.”
