Neu Pick: Watch Guillotine’s swirling, one-take video for ‘Southbound’

Watch Guillotine’s swirling, one-take video for ‘Southbound’

The South Coast band’s new three-track ‘Weakness’ is out 27th April via Venn Records/Failure By Design.

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 Guillotine.

South Coast quartet Guillotine are set to release a new three-track collection called ‘Weakness’ at the end of the month, and their hypnotic, one-take video for its track ‘Southbound’ is our Neu Pick for today.

True to the track’s ever-present darkness, the new video is a swirling, shape-shifting clip. ‘Southbound’ is a melodic thrash through supremely catchy punk. Harsh, gravelly vocals then explode in its chorus, turning the track into something altogether sharper.

The band are set to play a handful of shows across April and May, including dates with Tigers Jaw and Bellevue Days.

View the dates and watch the ‘Southbound’ video below.
