Danish trio Farveblind return with the final focus track ‘Crooks’, lifted from the new EP ‘All Clubs are Bastards’ released 14th October.
Following on from the band’s recent single ‘Rock N Rolla’ feat Copenhagen rapper Lucy Love, ‘Crooks’ ups the ante with an all-out frenzied assault on the senses and is accompanied by a visceral, mind-blowing visual clip by cult filmmaker Snorre Ruhe.
The band explain: “We felt inspired by artists like Boys Noize and Gesaffelstein and wanted to see how heavy we could make a track and it still being danceable, so with imagery of a hit and run robbery and a fast driving get-away car, we created ‘Crooks’. Sometimes it feels like your words carry more weight when you’re in a bad place mentally. As if the words sound bigger and wider, the further down a hole you are. As if everyone else takes them more seriously. That’s the thought we had when we wrote the lyrics.”
The director adds: “Finally the track I had been waiting for. Since I don’t know when, I have had a burning desire to make a hybrid between an 80’s music video and a 70s horror film. I think I’ve had the idea for a long time, but when I heard Farveblind’s Crooks for the first time, all the images just started to pop up in my head, and I saw the whole film very clearly. This kickass track needed a badass video. Here it is.”
Accomplished musicians and producers in their own right, Farveblind have sought a more aggressive sound with their new EP. The music has been more inspired by the energy of the punk-scene and mixed with hard-hitting electronic beats and bass bringing their rave-esque live-feeling into your speakers.
The band explain: “‘All Clubs Are Bastards’ is in its essence a mixture between club bangers and raw punk attitude. It is like going clubbing with Dr. Martens on. We wanted to bring rave culture to the punk scene; combine breakbeats with fuzz bass.”
