The Blinders have released a new video for their single Brave New World. Taken from forthcoming album Columbia, the track is dystopian view of rampant capitalism and vacuous celebrity. The Manchester based trio of Thomas Haywood, Charlie McGough and Matthew Neale have built a formidable reputation for their incendiary and theatrical live sets.
The video goes some way towards capturing the raw energy of the bands’ performance. When we spoke to the band back in May, ahead their set at Cabbage’s Ritz All-dayer. Frontman Thomas Hayward told us;
“The visual aspect of music is extremely important. That’s why people still see live bands, is it not? We work hard on our shows and we get excited, you know? And we want the crowd to get excited.”
After a blistering set at last week’s Tim Peaks Festival, the lads one over a big fan in Charlatans frontman Tim Burgess.
