Black Country, New Road have revealed a video for their latest single, ‘Concorde’.
The track is taken from forthcoming second album ‘Ants From Up There’, which is set for release on 4th February.
The video is directed by Maxim Kelly, who explains: “On the surface, the concept was straightforward, a walking video: An Ant from “up there”, sings Concorde. But, for a band who namecheck everyone from Scott Walker to Kanye West, and the pronounced mix of genres in their music, it felt right to take an analogous approach with the visuals. Throw as many references together as possible and see if we, too, could get it all to hold together as a piece.”
“We took the 6 minute+ runtime as an asset,” Kelly continues. “It gave us the time needed to weave as much as possible into the film. A walking video in parts, but also with a narrative running through. We combined miniatures with VFX, and flanked the film with archival footage.”
