SNOUT OF CONTROL
WHILE SHE SLEEPS get all deep and political on their crushing new video for ANTI-SOCIAL…
Ever thought to yourself, Hey, I’d quite like to pop to Loz Taylor’s house one day for a spot of dinner – he’s probably a great cook and would make a nice slap-up meal’? Yeah, us too. That is, until we saw While She Sleeps’ video for Anti-social, and realised he dines with… um… a big old swine on his table. As you do.
Okay, that’s not exactly accurate, but the powerful new clip – which was directed by Taylor Fawcett and guitarist Mat Welsh’s brother, Tom – is a fascinating insight into what goes on behind the scenes in camp While She Sleeps. More specifically, what’s going on in their brains, and how they feel about the current state of the world in 2018. And if you couldn’t already guess from the chorus of, ‘ I’m not anti-social; I’m anti-bullshit,’ the Sheffield metallers’ latest single suggests that they are pretty fed up – and the video implies a lot of that is down to the world’s obsession with smartphones. As for the track’s final line, ‘ Thank fuck for headphones’? Well, that’s a line that leaves little to second-guess. And we couldn’t agree more with it, obviously. K!
