Watch: Preoccupations share a new video for ‘Disarray’

Their new album ‘New Material’ is out on Friday.

Preoccupations’ new album ‘New Material’ is just around the corner – it’s out on 23rd March (that’s this Friday!)

Ahead of the release of the full album, they’ve now got a new video for ‘Disarray’, directed by Ruffmercy. It depicts the band’s bassist and vocalist Matt Flegel walking along a beach, but his image is distorted and warped in all kinds of ways.

As reported by Stereogum, Matt said of the track: “When I was writing ‘Disarray’, it started off with an image of a mother combing her daughters hair that came into my mind, I liked the metaphor of splitting the braids and combing through the tangles, and wrote the rest of the lyrics around that image. This song sat untouched for close to 6 months as a recording with just bass and drums before we came back to it and wrote and recorded the guitar line while out of our minds one night in the early AM”.

Preoccupations are also set to head off on a European tour in June and July, which includes a couple of dates in the UK. Tickets are on sale now.
