The ‘Actress Tes Remix’ of Tricky’s ‘Sun Down‘ featuring Tirzah is now online. The new version is an eerie and off-kilter interpretation featuring rattling hi-hats and bells of doom that fans of the London based producer will relish.
‘Sun Down’, the latest single from Tricky’s recent Adrian Thaws album, is a dark, seductive tale featuring hotly tipped London singer Tirzah, who impressed with the Greco-Roman released quirky electronica of ‘No Romance’. Tirzah was introduced to Tricky by his daughter Mazy; “She called me and said dad will you work with Tirzah. That’s my daughter A&Ring me, which is cool as fuck.”
In case you missed it, watch the video for ‘Sun Down’ here.
With his latest album Adrian Thaws out now on his own False Idols imprint, Tricky unveils the striking music video for the single “Sun Down,” which features guest vocals from Tirzah. Actor Norman Reedus of the hit television show ‘The Walking Dead’ co-stars with Tricky, along with actress Mizuo Peck (Night At The Museum, A Case of You).
The music video, which Tricky directed himself, was shot in Brooklyn and features Reedus and Tricky playing fictionalized versions of themselves dealing with the ugly fallout of a domestic dispute.
“It was so good working with Norman and Mizuo,” says Tricky. “Lee Jaffe has been telling me for a long time I need to direct more. Working with Norman and Mizuo have really inspired me to go and direct another movie.”
The introduction to the video is soundtracked by the Young Fathers remix of Tricky’s “Nicotine Love.”
The Adrian Thaws album continues a prolific period for Tricky, following last year’s acclaimed False Idols album. The record features collaborations with Nneka, Mykki Blanco, Blue Daisy, Oh Land, Bella Gotti, and Francesca Belmonte. A remix package for “Sun Down” is due in September.
Following the creation of his own False Idols imprint and last year’s album of the same name, Tricky returns in the fall of 2014 with a new studio project that shares the name he was given at birth: Adrian Thaws. “Calling it Adrian Thaws is saying you don’t really know me,” says Tricky of his 11th album. “So many times people have tried to put a finger on me and every album I go to a different place.”

London-based singer Tirzah was introduced in 2012 by Mica Levi, a.k.a. Micachu, with the wonky pop song "I’m Not Dancing", which was followed by a great four-track EP of the same name on Greco-Roman. Tirzah returns to Greco-Roman on April 21 with a five-track EP titled "No Romance", which she and Micachu describe as their “emo” record.
Tirzah‘s debut EP, I’m Not Dancing, is now seeing a vinyl release after its initial digital outing in August on Greco-Roman. Produced by experimental dance-pop maestro Micachu (of Micachu & The Shapes fame), the soulful singer’s music, tinged with garage and R&B is a brilliant sonic experiment. Below, you can watch the official video for the 11 minutes title track, directed by Grant Armour and stream the aptly titled EP track "Slow Jam." I’m Not Dancing EP is out now on Greco Roman.
