The Vacant Lots are Brooklyn based post-punk electro duo Jared Artaud and Brian MacFadyen.
They just released latest single and accompanying video ‘Thank You’, taken from incoming LP "Closure", which will be out on September 30th via Fuzz Club.
Disco beats are paired with gutter-rock guitar riffs and powerful lyrics: "Thank you for wasting my time", "Thank you for fucking up my life".
Jared Artaud says of the track: "When it's over it's a lot easier to look back and see things for what it is. To look back and see the duality of love and hate in a relationship. Sometimes it's a lot more devastating losing the time you had than the person you thought you loved. Nothing is worse than wasting your time."
Brian MacFadyen adds: "'Thank You' was built in the framework of simplicity. It has a relentless pace driven by an angular arpeggiated bassline and drum machine pattern. A Juno-6 was used for chords throughout, a Korg M500 for the leads, and the track is brought to another level with guitars layered on top. The process of crafting this song was done entirely remotely due to the pandemic and the layers over time became more and more refined until we were satisfied with each sound source."
