From the NME.
German illustrator and visual artist Raman Djafari directed the video, marking his first collaboration with the band. The clip follows a sinister devil-horned figure as it transcends into an alternate dimension via its washing machine.
“When planning the music videos for this album, we wanted to make sure we covered a few different mediums,” the band said in a statement. “We’re super happy to have a freaky animation ticked off the list.”
In a separate statement, director Djafari explained that the video was intended to be “a meditation on the feeling of being unfit, unlovable [and] not compatible,” as well as “the manic anxiety and stress that this results in.”
“I wanted to explore a state of mind that I have found myself in many times – of fearing to go outside and being confronted with everything that one cannot love about themselves,” he said.
“This is a video that relates to my own experiences as well as it is a solidarisation [sic] with everyone that has been made to feel this way.”
In other news, a new beer brewed by Gan Yam Brew Co. has been launched to celebrate the recent release of Squid‘s debut album.
Gan Yam Brew Co., which is based in Kendal, officially launched their independent microbrewery yesterday (May 17) and placed a number of new beers on sale.
One of the beers is ‘Bright Green Field’, a 5.5% New England-style IPA (NEIPA) that has been brewed in collaboration with Squid to celebrate their debut album.
“We’re excited to start brewing some great beer in Kendal and hopefully make a load of new friends along the way,” Gan Yam Brew Co. said in a statement. “When we started brewing together almost five years ago one of the first things we knew was that, if we ever got this far, we would want the brewery to be in Kendal.
“It feels a bit surreal that it’s actually happening, and the site is possibly uncomfortably close to the school we all met in, but it’s going to be one hell of a ride…”
