John Andrew Fredrick’s longstanding Los Angeles indie act the black watch has finished its 21st LP, Future Strangers, and its slated for release on Mar 24th 2023 via Dayton, Ohio’s ATOM Records.

And Rock & Roll Globe is pleased to offer our readers an early taste of what Future Strangers will be bringing to listeners with the video for the album’s first single “Nothing Left To Say.” 

“This is the second video that director Marlena Salway has done for us; the first one was for a forthcoming song called ‘New Brooms Sweep Clean,'” Frederick tells us. “Seeing as making videos is far and away our least favorite thing about having a band, we just took the proverbial leap of faith and let Marlena come up with the concept here as well–which worked out a treat as her aesthetic is very much aligned with ours in this kinda (we hope) endearing, kinda creepy take on the song.

“One can never say about the black watch that we’re above making fun of ourselves–that’s for sure! And you’ll never ever catch us doing karaoke. As The Beatles said in that first wonderful NYC press conference:  ‘We need money first!'”

Make sure you pre-order Future Strangers on the black watch’s BandCamp page before falling into the rabbit hole of Frederick’s vast songbook. For fans of dark guitar pop on par with XTC, Peter Murphy solo albums and Echo & The Bunnymen, the catalog created by this true maverick of the L.A. underground is well worth exploring.
