Bubbles Erotica Release Official Video for “Cicada Arcade” off Upcoming, Self-Titled Debut Album
“Cicada Arcade” Premiered on Tattoo.com
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
April 12, 2017 – Chicago based, alternative rock band Bubbles Erotica has released the Official Music Video for “Cicada Arcade,” the lead single off of their debut, eponymous album, due out 5/9/2017. Originally premiered on Tattoo.com, “Cicada Arcade” was directed by Ali Manesh at 3E Visuals.
“Cicada Arcade” speaks to the culture of social media we live in today. A lot of people talking and making noise, but not listening or paying attention to the world around them. It’s a very me-first frame of mind, with everyone believing that their ideas and opinions are more important than everyone else’s. Our animator, Ali at 3E Visuals took that idea further with his visual interpretation of our lyrics. – Bubbles Erotica
it’s about wanting to get away from the constant noise and distractions that everyone is making in order to create and project their own false realities. And none of the false realities that are being thrown out there are original or unique, but are just based on recycled thoughts and beliefs that are being fed to them. Then the main character goes through a thought process that eventually ends up with him recognizing that he’s not any different and his own existence and reality is based on those very same noises an distractions. But as he’s coming to this realization, it’s too late as he’s actually fully immersed and drowning in the waste from his own false reality. – Ali Manesh – 3E Visuals
Bubbles Erotica formed in 2010 when members Phillip Hasso, Bradley Springer, Michael Hasso, and Colin Stone came together to bring something new to the Rock genre. As you will hear in “Cicada Arcade”, Bubbles Erotica is doing exactly what they set out to do, unleashing a bold sound that is tastefully unique; leaving you with an insatiable craving for more. – Tattoo.com

In today’s cut-throat music scene, it’s rare to find a band as self-sufficient, forward-thinking and as conscious about their art as Bubbles Erotica. In 2010, members Philip Hasso, Bradley Springer, Michael Hasso, and and Colin Stone came together to bring something new to the Rock Genre. From the constantly shifting sounds they create to the lush cover art of their two albums to their expansive, mind-bending videos: this is a band that, while eager to stand-out, doesn’t seem pre-occupied with waiting for someone else to get them heard. They’re forever creating, always two steps ahead of anyone else in their genre, locally or otherwise.
