Every weekday, DIY’s new music know-it-all Neu brings you one essential new release to get obsessed with. Today’s Neu Pick comes from Gender Roles.
Brighton-based Gender Roles are the latest signings to Big Scary Monsters, and their new video for ‘About Her’ is our Neu Pick for today.
The new clip for the melody-packed punk-pop thrasher sees the trio heading to the woods. We’re just hoping it wasn’t filmed in January. Wrap up warm, lads.
“About Her is a song about many things, but a lot of it is about how sometimes there are things that can only be fixed at stupid o’clock in the morning sat in someone’s kitchen,” the band tell us over email.
“That’s why we thought it would be fitting to take bubble wands and a drum kit to the woods. Filmed by our mate Josh Belcher and held together with sellotape. Enjoy.”
The band are set to support Jamie Lenman on tour in the UK throughout February. View the dates and watch the ‘About Her’ video below.
