Blaenavon have shared a video for their comeback single ‘Catatonic Skinbag’.
The first taster of the band’s forthcoming second album ‘Everything That Makes You Happy’, the clip was directed by London based creatives Homer & Farley.
As frontman Ben Gregory explains: “The video reflects a pretty miserable time in my life. Living in a cycle of self pity and sensual self-indulgence. Harris and Frank knocking on my door but I’m too busy soaking in stagnant bath water to answer. The song is a bit of fun but the theme is pretty severe: “always tired, lacking desire to feel enough to start the day.”
Blaenavon have just finished up a support run with The Wombats (which you can check out a ‘behind’ the ‘scenes’ feature on here), and will head off on their own headline tour this May. They’ll also play Reading, Leeds and Community festivals this summer.
