群蚁蚀象 Ants Corrupt Elephant

about

欲望為象,焦慮為蟻。
動物朋友們和我講了同一個故事,我將告訴你,這個故事會留在你的胸口。

7點11分他關掉工作的電腦,扭頭看向夜幕下的城市,落地窗把他和撲朔迷離的街燈隔離開,要是沒有這些窗,他一定會被外面迷幻的夜景拖掉下樓去,他趕緊帶上口罩離開寫字樓,鑽進地鐵,回到十平米的合租房,點上外賣,隨意點開視頻平臺的首頁熱播,消磨下飯時間,螢幕播放著生活在叢林裏的一群動物,遵循著動物法則,弱肉強食,適者生存,眼前的景象絲毫沒有吸引他的注意力,反而困意襲來,他躺在床上盤算自己如何安穩度過餘生,此時他的頭開始長出觸角,手也長出動物的皮毛,複眼旋轉著注視周圍和自己的身體,他無法說話,在慌亂無助中沖向窗外,他的新身體發出春季復蘇的信號,隨之幻化成11只動物飛向遠方...

退格新專輯一改以往灰暗色調,轉向五顏六色的超自然時空,勾起現實世界中人們的動物形態,專輯巧妙地將樂器轉化成筆,勾勒出十一個動物形象,書寫十一種人物狀態,如同卡夫卡筆下的薩姆沙,裏面的描寫正是當下年輕人狀態最真實的寫照,而音樂中充滿活力的律動,跳躍的貝斯線,婉轉而簡單的雙吉他駕上轟鳴,像在宣告,我們需要勇敢直面森羅萬象的叢林法則。

這是退格的第二張全長專輯《群蟻蝕象》錄製於2020年5月,詞曲:鄭冬,編曲:退格,主唱/吉他:鄭冬,吉他/合成器:阿輝,貝斯:瓜瓜,鼓/打擊樂:毛特,製作、錄音、混音:李平,母帶:Henke Jonsson,合成器/打擊樂:文予真,鋼琴/小提琴:閆玉龍,低音單簧管:朱文博,打擊樂:李平,和聲:趙凱、養雞、Jingya,攝影:Guodong,封面視覺設計:鄭冬,文字設計:太史功玨,翻譯:綠綠,特別感謝:楊海崧、劉心宇、Passerwoo、郭震、樊晏以及支持與幫助退格的朋友們。
