Queer faction The FMs have released their new video “Silent City (Ghost Stories Redux)” just in time for the new wave of the Coronavirus to wreak havoc on the streets of New York City and the world for that matter…The original version, a shocking description of the desolate ghost town New York became was launched at the onset of Covid 19. This remix was no less shocking. However, the song had been written 2 years prior by front person Matte Namer and described a pandemic hitting NYC where people would be sequestered to their homes.
Version 2 of “Silent City” is just as eerie yet whimsical, psychotic, and chaotic, as well in the best way possible. It’s dazzling and fluorescent and scary all at once, but most importantly it’s intense enough to make one think. “This City has given us so much, and this is our love letter back to it”, according to Matte Namer.
The FMs were formed in 2017 by Matte Namer (they/them) and Frankie Rex (he, him, they, them) who met in a high school. The band exudes sex, subversion, and style through their politically charged industrial pop music. “We realized our voices had this incredible synergy”….Matte Namer. The faction is aware of what is going on in the world, and through their song and messages they strive to make it a better place.
“Silent City” is a riveting exclamation of music and cinematography. It touches you in places you never thought you’d be touched. It eclipses us all and brings us reality In plain daylight……
