Video of the Moment #2274: Syd Arthur

Canterbury’s Syd Arthur released their latest album ‘Apricity’ last autumn. You can read Carrie’s review of the LP through here. They’ve readied a new single from the record, ‘No Peace’, which now has its own music video. Of the song, frontman Liam McGill, whom Carrie interviewed around the time of the album’s release, says of the song:

“‘No Peace’ is about information overload. We set out to write an inviting song with a message we can all relate to, a reminder to put down that screen down once in a while and experience something more real. The video’s colour pallette is orange and grey reflecting the album artwork. The imagery was inspired by social media and the incessant objects that surround our modern existence. Visually we wanted it to have a minimilistic and clean look but with added glitch and static to resemble the organised yet chaotic nature of the world.”

Food for thought. Watch the music video for ‘No Peace’ below. To read more of TGTF’s coverage on Syd Arthur, follow this link.
