A Steamy Love Triangle Hits the Dance Floor in Clubz’s “Popscuro” Video

Clubz have been taking their sweet time to finally drop their debut album. They shared its first single, the deliciously smooth, sax-driven “El Rollo” about six months ago. But afterwards, the Monterrey duo went silent – a sure sign they were cooking up something good. That turned out to be the second single off their upcoming album, slated for a 2017 release through Canada Editorial.

“Popscuro” isn’t dark in any sense of the word; instead, it bubbles with bouncy synths. It’s impossible not to link Clubz to turn-of-the-80s synth pop, and this song finds them knee-deep in it: dashes of AM funk and glimpses of disco embellish their glossy pop, with a bass line that steals your attention from the octave-up layered vocals.

Directed by Laura Martinova in Barcelona, the video tells the story of a young love triangle torn apart on the dance floor. After a boy and a girl hit it off in a convenience store, he tries to win her heart at the club – but not only does she have a boyfriend, he’s got moves too. Who gets to keep the girl in the end? Press play to find out.

Clubz plays Festival Nrmal on March 11 and Primavera Sound on June 3.
