Employing a late 80s grunge sound combined with a 60s melodic structure, London based alt rock band DROOL have released an official music video for the newly released single ‘Junkyard’.

Directed by Jim Pilling and produced by Francesca Di Muro

Shot entirely in a film-noir aesthetic, the video shows a frantic but mysterious cat-and-mouse chase through city streets. It emphasises the songs foreboding tone and is reminiscent of rock music videos produced in the late 80s / early 90s. With euphoric distorted guitar strings and howling lyrics, its hard to argue that ‘Junkyard’ evokes the crunching core components of bands like Pixies, Nirvana and Soundgarden

Elaborating on the concept behind the latest video, DROOL front man Joey Rogers says: “After the video for ‘Fun’ we wanted to make an intimate portrait of a band performing. It was inspired by a lot of 90s music videos crossed with cult films like Natural Born Killers.” 

Already making a name for themselves as an explosively exciting live act, the band are already earmarked as one of the unmissable acts of this year’s Camden Rocks Festival in June. They’re a band to keep your eye on.
