Nation Of Language Unveils Music Video for Latest Single “Too Much, Enough” from Upcoming Album Strange Disciple

Nation Of Language

Nation Of Language, the Brooklyn-based synth-pop trio, has released their latest single, “Too Much, Enough,” which is part of their upcoming album Strange Disciple. The track serves as a critique of the negative impact of constant exposure to angering, addictive, and anxiety-inducing TV news cycles. The band takes a satirical approach in the music video, featuring Emmy-nominated actor Jimmi Simpson (known for ‘Westworld’ and ‘It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’), as well as fellow musicians Reggie Watts, Kevin Morby, Tomberlin, Moldy Peaches’ Adam Green, and LVL UP’s Greg Rutkin.

The music video also includes appearances from family members and friends of the band, as they perform their uplifting synth-driven melodies. Directed by Robert Kolodny, the video offers an absurdist perspective to avoid becoming a form of outrage bait.

Explaining the inspiration behind ‘”Too Much, Enough,” the band expresses their exhaustion with the 24-hour news cycle and its tendency to provoke constant outrage. They emphasize the importance of denying others the power to manipulate destructive emotions and celebrate that notion in the visual accompaniment.

Too Much, Enough,” marks the fourth single from Nation Of Language’s forthcoming third LP, Strange Disciple. The previous singles ‘Sole Obsession,’ ‘Weak In Your Light,’ and ‘Stumbling Still’ all contribute to the album’s overarching theme of infatuation and how it can warp one’s reality. The band delves into the unhealthy obsessions and infatuations present in everyday life.

Scheduled for release on September 15 through PIAS, Strange Disciple is highly anticipated by fans. As the band continues to explore the concept of infatuation in their new album, they’re also gearing up for a UK and European tour later in the year. The UK leg of the tour will commence at HEAVEN in London on September 17, with performances in Brighton, Bristol, Manchester, and more, concluding in Newcastle on October 7.
