(SXSW 2017 flavoured!) Video of the Moment #2252: Slaves

Kent hard rocking duo Slaves closed out September with the release of ‘Take Control’, their second album. It was going to be a tough job to follow their 2015 bracing debut ‘Are You Satisfied?’, previously under consideration for a Mercury Prize. I thought they did quite a good job with this, and you can read my review of the sophomore effort through this link. Let’s be honest, the holidays can be quite a trying time. And if you’ve heard the news that dropped Monday that Metal Hammer was going into administration, I’m thinking you need some good punk to get you through this week before Christmas.

Isaac and Laurie have come through the music video for ‘Hypnotised’. The pair are shown doing what they do best – laying ruin to their instruments – in a dark and dingy basement, while onlookers appear to be hypnotised – literally, with cartoon glasses looking like they’ve been taken out of a Rocky and Bullwinkle cartoon – by the spectacle. Get ready to headbang and watch it below. ‘Take Control’ is out now on Virgin EMI; the guys are scheduled to perform at SXSW 2017 in March in Austin. For much more on Slaves on TGTF, use this link.
