FANGCLUB Release New Video for ‘Vulture Culture’
Fangclub’s new video for the title track of their sophomore album Vulture Culture is nostalgic and edgy.
With an aged film tone to the cinematography, the video matches well the radio fuzz style of the track. The music itself is full of angst and a sense of carelessness to the static sound. The chugging beat is enticing and grabs your attention, the guitar feeling as though it is at the forefront of the track alongside the vocals.
Talking on the new album, vocalist/guitarist Steven King comments:
There was a real atmosphere of obsession from everybody. It’s the craziest thing I’ve ever done. The theme of the album became violent, there’s a lot of violence in the tone of it, towards yourself and other things. It comes off as a heavier record because I didn’t have time to hide the real stories. It really captured something. The pressure added to it, like ‘that line’s pretty revealing but I have to put it down, I don’t have anything else’. We could’ve gone in and made another debut, this punk thing with loads of hooks, or I could back myself into a corner. It’s a strangely revealing and personal album but I don’t feel afraid to share it because it’s almost as if I’ve expelled the things.
