The hunger for releasing music drives Sebastian Clarin’s creative spirit. After the release of ‘Aerial Cuts’ last fall, he wastes no time in delivering a rawer and more direct electropop gem. Brace yourselves for a summer anthem that will ignite the darker dance floors with its infectious energy.
Clarins’ musical journey draws inspiration from the singer-songwriter traditions of legends like Nick Cave and Leonard Cohen, yet his soundscape takes a contrasting direction. Through grandiose electronic soundscapes, captivating melodies, and raw dance beats, he molds a unique blend of modern new wave and electronic pop. His music effortlessly fuses elements from the ’80s, ’90s, and the present.
‘Tongue Particles’ is a single that transcends boundaries, exploring the theme of sexual submission and the allure of surrendering to an intoxicating power. Clarin shares, “The writing of this song began during heavy fever chills. Something mysterious happens when you have 40 degrees Celsius in your body… You become like a vampire’s victim who finally begs to be bitten.”
The new single is produced by Tobias Isaksson from The Future Sound of Stockholm, who artfully captures Clarin’s artistic vision, enhancing it with rich layers of analog synths.
Sebastian Clarin’s debut album, ‘Aerial Cuts,’ featuring the successful singles ‘Aries,’ ‘Teeth (Cyanides),’ and ‘High Blood Treasure,’ propelled him into the spotlight, garnering attention from international bloggers and solidifying his presence in the Swedish and Scandinavian music scenes. The album, developed over several years in collaboration with former techno producer Henrik B., solidified Clarin’s reputation as a rising talent.

In a surprising twist, the dynamic duo of 9 o’clock Nasty and I Am The Unicorn Head have once again come together to create an undeniable anthem for the Summer.
We’ve all had those moments, haven’t we? When a questionable choice of pizza topping leads to introducing your own mother to a squid, and suddenly the universe aligns in the most peculiar way, followed swiftly by a wave of stomach-churning regret.
The summer of 2023 didn’t necessarily request a psychedelic masterpiece, nor did it specifically demand the oddest song ever recorded by a hybrid of humans and half-humans to become the infectious hit of the season. Yet, as we gradually grasp the concept, life often grants us what we truly deserve rather than what we initially seek.
Combining the raw and unyielding beats crafted by 9 o’clock Nasty with the whimsical and captivating pop melodies from I Am The Unicorn Head, their latest single, aptly titled “DUDE, YOUR MOM’S A SQUID?”, takes listeners on an exhilarating journey. The Unicorn adds a touch of twisted logic, while Nasty injects the pulsating energy required to fuel a summer of unapologetic hedonism.
Whoever said we couldn’t challenge the structures of global capitalism while reveling in the joys of life? It’s time to turn on, tune in, and fully embrace the beautiful chaos that surrounds us.
“DUDE, YOUR MOM’S A SQUID?” will be available for streaming on all major platforms and YouTube starting Saturday, June 17th, 2023. For those eager to get a sneak preview, the song’s vibrant and imaginative music video can already be found on YouTube.
This summer, get ready to experience a wave of collaborative brilliance. In July, 9 o’clock Nasty will join forces with the mischievous pranksters of Brighton known as “The Qwarks” for a two-part Pocket Opera. But fear not, for normal service will resume in September with the release of a brand-new single. And brace yourselves, as we prepare to unleash the unbridled mayhem of our highly anticipated third LP, “Cultural Revolution 2023,” set to shake the very foundations of musical conventions this autumn. Or at least, that’s our fervent hope.
