¡Que Asco! (“Kay assko”, Spanish for gross) have allowed us to reveal the new video for ‘Marigolds’ today, watch it above. Its the first song to be released from their debut album Reaper due out 24th May.
The idea for the video is about a woman taking control of her life. It was filmed by Glitch creative on location in sunny Barry. The concept was a collaborative idea with the band and glitch. “They wanted the video to depict the ordinary story that Joshua talks about in the lyric. So out of that came this Idea of a frustrated housewife who will never wear marigolds again, her frustration matching the music and being interlaced with the band playing in this thrashy aesthetic.”
The bands main songwriter Josh Caole says he wants to write lyrics that ‘people would pay attention to, and lists Alex Turner and the Kelly Jones of the first Stereophonics album as key reference points. “They tell you about the places they’re from, the things that have happened to them,” he says. The album’s opener, Marigolds, is, he offers, “what it would be like if Kelly Jones wasn’t just writing about the normal people in his village, but focused on the ‘oddballs’ instead.”
¡Que Asco! (“Kay assko”, Spanish for gross) came together in Cardiff with the singular aim of making a lot of noise and a dedication to raw, pure, powerful sound. Years spent touring as a folk musician and living a peaceful life in Spain left Joshua Caole desperate to get back to his hardcore roots in South Wales.
