Just in time for Halloween, South London duo PREGOBLIN have shared their newest single ‘Snakes & Oranges’ alongside a horror movie inspired new video.
The song is about violence,” they say of the new release. “A person is sizing up who they may hurt in a relationship or in life and its inevitability.”
Continuing about the vid, they add, “The following video uses archetypes we share. Violence in a family home. An authoritarian police-like but infantile father. An owl-like mother is all seeing but silent - all references in the costumes. Jess plays a young teen where her only respite is time with a pet and bedroom. She is scared by watching a horror movie. She hears a noise and goes to check the house stopping to pick up weapons along the way. She selects a pitchfork - the horror movie staple and a buster of feminist Simone De Beauvoir and then nunchaku. But the noise is just her parents returning home after walking their pet snakes. They are Twit-like with bad personal hygiene habits. They begin to argue. Jessica’s mum shouts: ‘Jessica you know your father has an ectoplasmic titanium skeleton.’ Something my geek mate at school claimed to have had was surgery to replace his body with a titanium skeleton.”
