Following the release of ‘The Ultra Vivid Lament’ last month, Manic Street Preachers are now sharing the video for ‘Complicated Illusions’.

The track is described by the band as “The battle between chaos and calm with a gliding majestic lyrical flow – leaning towards’ More Than This’ era-Roxy - Bowie’s Lodger - peak pop Echo & the Bunnymen.”

Film maker Kieran Evans adds, “I’ve always felt the track feels like an epic soundtrack to an as yet made film so I’ve gone for a visual/lyric type affair using a similar aesthetic / approach to a lot of Netflix type title sequences using minimal / small type over multi-layered imagery.”
