Brighton-based indie-rock band Voodoo and the Crypts have released their new music video for single ‘Vicious Underground’. It’s an upbeat indie-rock romp with clear brit-pop influences and a cool, laidback music video that shows the band chilling in the countryside – an image at odds with the stressed nature of the lyrics. They had this to say about the project:
“Punching rhythms and mountainous riffs lay the groundwork for this genre-bending track which blends influences from psychedelic rock, 90’s big beat, and indie rock to hip-hop and dance music. Vicious underground paints an abstract picture of the fear of missing out; the feeling of time-consuming our dreams and control of our lives slipping through our fingers. Despite its undeniably dark narrative, it’s direct and uplifting delivery indicates acceptance of these notions and urges the listener to question themselves “what will you do when time passes by?” How will we face the dwindling opportunities that life offers us as we grow older? Providing a hypnotic escape, Vicious Underground also offers a conceptual perspective on issues that swarm the daily lives of the modern youth.”
‘Vicious Undergound‘ by Voodoo and the Crypts is out now.
