Black Country, New Road reveal ‘Concorde’ video

Their second album lands next month.

With their eagerly-awaited second album ‘Ants From Up There’ set to land on 4th February via Ninja Tune, Black Country, New Road are sharing the video for latest single ‘Concorde’. Directed by Maxim Kelly, Maxim says, “On the surface, the concept was straightforward, a walking video: An Ant from “up there”, sings Concorde.But, for a band who namecheck everyone from Scott Walker to Kanye West, and the pronounced mix of genres in their music, it felt right to take an analogous approach with the visuals. Throw as many references together as possible and see if we, too, could get it all to hold together as a piece. “We took the 6 minute+ runtime as an asset. It gave us the time needed to weave as much as possible into the film. A walking video in parts, but also with a narrative running through. We combined miniatures with VFX, and flanked the film with Archival footage. “The band were so supportive and amazing. They gave us the encouragement to just go off on one! And being a massive fan of their music, it was a genuine pleasure to work with them on this film.” Watch the video now below. ‘Ants From Up There’ Tracklisting: 1. Intro 2. Chaos Space Marine 3.
