Liars have released the video for new track ‘No.1 Against The Rush’.
The song is taken from their forthcoming album, WIXIW, and the accompanying clip shows urban mundanity taking a dark and twisted turn.
The upcoming LP follows on from the band’s brilliant 2010 release Sisterworld and comes out on 4 June.
Guitarist Aaron Hemphill opened up to The Quietus about the vid:
“When we approached the director we wanted to give him full control and just see what his response was to the song. He developed it entirely, it had nothing to do with us. At the time we make the record usually nobody has heard the record, so it’s a really good chance to get a visual on what these people think, or how they interpret the song.”
“I think it was the enthusiasm that he had for the track. What he was trying to set out to do with the video was really exciting to us. He was trying to see the city in different ways, and I thought that was great. I think how we see the city and how we interact with our surroundings is very different from when we made ‘Sisterworld’.”
