Mastersystem, the new project featuring an indie galacticos line-up of Scott Hutchinson and Grant Hutchinson (Frightened Rabbit), Justin Lockey (Editors) and James Lockey (Minor Victories), have shared a video for their debut single Notes On A Life Not Quite Lived.
“I thought it would be interesting to play around with the themes of restlessness and dissatisfaction on this album, both as a counterpoint to the exuberance of the music and as an obvious reference to the angst and tension I heard in the grunge and fuzz of my teenage years,” Scott Hutchinson explains.
“This is not the angst of a teenager, however. This is the anxiety of a man in his mid-30s, and for a lot of this record I found myself wrestling with the ways in which I am not quite doing life right, in spite of appearing to lead a relatively joyful, playful and artistic existence.”
A debut album entitled Dance Music will arrive on April 6th; some UK tour dates have been arranged not long after.
