Here it is, the moment that you’ve all been waiting for! The new (and very first music video) for York industrial rock band Digicore for ‘You’re Not Like Me’ taken from the band’s album, ‘More Than Just An Ape’.
‘You’re Not Like Me’ is inspired directly by vocalist Danny Carnage’s interest in all things sci-fi, and his desire to challenge established views of society and our roles within it. He comments: “The song is about alienation, and that constant struggle that some people face just being a part of a world that many take for granted,” he adds: “With this track, I wanted to explore the commonly held belief that it’s the system that’s broken, and ask the question: What if the system is fine, and it is really me that is broken?”
The video was directed and produced by North Yorkshire media production company, The Creative Condition. The brief from Danny to the group was a simple one, “I’d like a post-apocalyptic comic-style video…with cyborgs.”
It’s safe to say that mega objective has been achieved with this. On building the video, TCC Creative Director, Jay Sillence says: “I was immediately inspired by Dan’s idea, my mind went to ‘2000 AD’, ‘Heavy Metal’ and ‘Tank Girl’ as well as a lexicon of 80s sci-fi movies.” Jay drew everything by hand, and then it was digitally coloured, composited and animated. “The challenge was creating an entire comic book from scratch and making it move, but it was different to anything I’ve done before, and really was the perfect project.”
Digicore’s ‘More Than Just An Ape’ is out now on Armalyte Industries.
