LIFE share animated ‘Excites Me’ video

The Hull punk outfit share some new stop-motion visuals.

Following the release of their indispensable second record ‘A Picture Of Good Health’, Hull’s finest LIFE are sharing their newest visuals for album cut ‘Excites Me’.

Speaking on the track, frontman Mez says: “Sometimes music hits you like a shot of pure adrenaline, like electricity in your blood stream, like a never ending firework. Sometimes music heals you. Sometimes music excites you. Music excites me. Let it excite you.”

Releasing the animated, stop motion video for ‘Excites Me’ today, director Callum Scott-Dyson says of the video’s origins: “For ‘Excites Me’, we really wanted to do something manic and full of energy to match the pace of the track, while also develop a loose narrative that echoed some of the ideas in the song and lyrics. What started out as a more vague thing based around wanting to escape boring situations and explode with pent up rage, became a bit of a character piece about a man stuck in a boring job with lots of mundane things going on, who has to do something crazy to escape this life. Then the narrative gets crazier and crazier as his inner demon comes out and he grows into a rage filled monster.”

Watch the madness unfold below.
