Last night (23rd October), they brought the latter to the current series of Later… with Jools Holland, backed by a string section.
In conjunction with the Jools performance, the band have now shared a fancy new video for ‘Chillers’, directed by Najeeb Tarazi and depicting the hollow heart of Hollywood that the band attack in the song.
“We really loved Najeeb’s take on the song,” vocalist Catrin Vincent says of the new clip. ”He understood that it’s not just another takedown of Hollywood. Instead, he chose to follow the relatively untold story of the bike scene in L.A.
“Our generation is unique; a generation lambasted by the media, labelled as ‘ungrateful millennials’ because we’re dissatisfied working jobs our grandparents would have been grateful for. But we’re a generation that has changed more rapidly than any other, one that takes risks and rejects tradition. What better story for our generation than a young biker working a menial job to support doing what he really loves?
“We need to look at why minimum wage has remained so static while the price of living has risen dramatically. We need to notice and support the worker strikes against big corporations.”
The band are set to play a headline London show at Electrowerkz next month, before heading out on a full UK tour next February.
