Low Cut Connie released the new single ‘Help Me’ accompanied by censored and uncensored versions of the official music video. Frontman Adam Weiner self-directed the video and explains, “We had big plans for the video, an elaborate dance piece. But quarantine changed the deal. It became a no-frills, anti-production piece. Naked in every sense of the word. I brought all the psychic terrors of this time into the room and just tried to sweat it out.” The single appears on the forthcoming album Private Lives out October 13th via Contender Records / MidCitizen Records.
The jittery ‘Help Me’ is a plea for understanding at a time when compassion is running in short supply. “That’s me shooting straight from the hip,” says Weiner. “I just sorta opened up my brain for a quick second and spit this out. Listening back later, it feels very real.”
It’s an ode to the odd and the eccentric, to the alienated and the broken, and a daily search for liberation. The swaggering title track, which Rolling Stone called an “upbeat piano-rocker” and NPR Music’s Ann Powers called “The freak anthem we need right now,” opens the album with a look at the vitality and humanity of subcultures that come to life behind closed doors, while the searing ‘Look What They Did’ grapples with the devastation left behind after the predatory corruption of Donald Trump and his associates ravaged Atlantic City.
