PUPPY em­brace “im­ma­ture ex­cite­ment” in their new video for WORLD STANDS STILL…

Kerrang! (UK) - - Access All Areas -

Few things are as en­joy­able in life as weird alt.rock-meetsmetal, and in­dulging your in­ner nerd. Lon­don trio Puppy clearly know this all too well, hav­ing de­liv­ered both in their bril­liant new video for World Stands Still.

“Many of our big­gest in­flu­ences as a band are movies, com­puter games and mu­sic that we loved as kids,” ex­plains drum­mer Billy Howard, who also di­rected and edited the clip. “We never re­ally got over that kind of im­ma­ture ex­cite­ment for the stuff we found cool. Equally, though, there’s kind of a lone­li­ness and weird­ness to be­ing that age – which is ac­tu­ally prob­a­bly part of the rea­son you throw your­self so com­pletely into all the stuff you find cool in the first place.”

And the best way to por­tray all of the above? With a cool-as-hell Goblin Girl char­ac­ter roam­ing the streets, shredding on gui­tar and just gen­er­ally be­ing an all-round badass. “We think that the Goblin Girl em­bod­ies this ju­ve­nile side to our band pretty neatly,” Billy adds. “We hope you en­joy watch­ing her ad­ven­tures as much as we en­joyed film­ing them.” K! PUPPY ’S NEW AL­BUM THE GOAT IS DUE OUT ON JAN­UARY 25,2019 VIA SPINEFARM RECORDS. THE BAND ARE ON TOUR WITH KING 810 RIGHT NOW
