“’Statuette On The Console’ is a celebration of shedding other people’s ideology,” Bodega’s Nik E Iki says.

Bodega’s build-up to their second album Broken Equipment is continuing today with the latest single Statuette On The Console.

As well as taking lead vocals on the track, Nik E Iki has directed its video with an old-school tech fascination very much in mind:

“I have a certain reverence for the symbols of religion; creating iconography with antiquated technology is a big part of my process for the art of Bodega.”

“For the song’s accompanying music video, I cast myself as the titular statuette on the console, miming the song on top of an old television set, wearing a halo made out of a laser disc.”

“I also created a giant iPhone dongle out of cardboard, fabric and pillow stuffing. In our tech-obsessed world, the dongle is a symbol with godlike powers of animating silence. I see something tragic in the fragility of these dongles and our dependence on them. It’s only a matter of days before they become broken equipment.”
