Charles Bukowski's Nirvana revolves around a young man traveling to an undetermined destination, questioning his purpose in the world. Along the young man's aimless journey, he encounters a moment in time at a charming diner. In just that moment something is awakened inside of him, but even with a sense of purpose, sadness follows. "Nirvana" is a melancholy postcard from memories long past.
Love Your Friends, Hate Politicians is the first single extracted from the forthcoming second album by spanish electronic duo The Suicide of Western Culture. Their debut album received great reviews and they have since played the festival circuit, impressing crowds at SXSW, Sonar, and Eurosonic. Their second album, Hope Only Brings Pain, is set for release in 2013 on Irregular, and is at once tragic and optimistic in its symphony of organized chaos.
The music video -filmed in Barcelona and New York- has been directed and produced by Actop, the Barcelona creative cell formed by post-production wizard Alvaro P. Posadas and director César Pesquera. They also designed the cover for the album, assuming all the creative direction in the launch of the TSOWC second album.
