Following the release of their new album “Beware Believers” last month, Crows share the video for the record’s opening track, ‘Closer Still’.
The video is a feverish wrath of stacked media performance clips, shot and presented in a lo-fi aesthetic with a conceptual portrayal of the angst that band put into the lyrics.
Pulsating, politically nuanced rock brings to the fore what singer James Cox mentions what the group wanted to highlight with regard to injustices of schemes that put vulnerable people in difficult working situations that were not adequate enough
“‘Closer Still’ was written about the fit-for-work scandals that kept happening where the Department for Work & Pensions were deeming people fit for work when they obviously weren’t able to, taking away what little support they received from the state in an attempt to save on expenditure. It really highlighted our government’s contempt for the vulnerable. People whose daily lives were incredibly difficult.”James Cox, Crows.
Crows will bring their liveliness to stage soon at The Great Escape, where their raucous energy will be on show for all to see. Catch them at Revenge on Saturday 14th at 9:45pm.
