Watch the video for new single 'Hypnotise'
30th March 2017
With their debut album Still Life released 28th April on Domino, south London trio Little Cub have shared a video for the latest track to be taken from the album, ‘Hypnotise’. Watch the video now below.
Compiled and directed by Kim Taylor, the new video’s cut-and-paste library imagery echoes vocalist Dominic Gore’s call to arms lyricism, romanticising a future beyond the common modern day dystopian view.
“We're big fans of the way Adam Curtis, Mark Leckey or Elizabeth Price work with found footage to convey complex issues simply,” says Gore of the new video. “It gives their films a sense of timelessness (these aren't new issues, Orwell was talking about this 70 years ago) and a tradition that we thought was important because it combats the lethargy to feel part of something bigger, to feel less helpless, to feel less alone. You don't have to be a shining example to be angry about what's happening in society right now. Feeling powerless and apathetic because your voice isn't heard or because you're told you're complicit isn't a reason to be quiet. It's a very British thing to be uncomfortable with over-sincerity but this stuff is everywhere and everyone is talking about it, so to ignore it entirely and just write songs about how great life is feels not only idiotic but also unrealistic.”
Alongside the new video, the band have announced new live dates including slots at this year’s Stag and Dagger, The Great Escape, Dot To Dot and Latitude festivals and a special headline date at London’s The Lexington on Tuesday May 9th to celebrate the album’s release.
