Fuck Buttons are going their own way and it's taking the British digi-gaze roarers to a dark, heady place. Unlike their last two albums, the duo's upcoming Slow Focus is self-produced — 2009's Tarot Sport was helmed by techno innovotor Andrew Weatherall, and 2008's Street Horrrsing was overseen by Mogwai guitarist John Cummings. Even in edited form, the new long-player's first taste, "The Red Wing," is a violent shift, mixing threatening textures with block-rockin' beats and unidentifiable skronk, though the group's distorted-goblin vocals are notably absent. The video too was done in-house, by Fuck Buttons half Andrew Huang, and shows a woman dancing in slow-motion as she's put through dizzyingly refracting visual effects. It's a spare but fitting treatment for the song, which will also be available in full as a limited-edition gold vinyl single via ATP on June 25. Slow Focus follows on July 23.
