Watch: Gender Roles – ‘You Look Like Death’

By June 19, 2019 Listen, News, Sheffield

Brighton indie punks GENDER ROLES have released new single ‘You Look Like Death’, the first track taken from their debut album, PRANG, set for release on 30th August via Big Scary Monsters.

Watch the video to ‘You Look Like Death’ here:

The band comment on the song: “’You Look Like Death’ is the story of leaving home told through everyone else’s words. It’s anxiousness we feel, thinking we have let loved ones down and what they might say if they could see us now. This song is the interpretation of how it must feel on the other side, to watch someone grow up, fly the nest, make bad decisions and find their way in this crazy world. It’s thinking of the first day you can remember on the day you leave.”

Directed by Ben Pollard, the accompanying video is a clever interpretation of the song’s theme. The band explain: “The video is centred around a character that is stuck in their own head – they’ve shut themselves away for too long and are now petrified of the world outside. You could say they look like death (smug face). FEAR NOT FRIEND! GR are here to wake you the fuck up, give you a lil pep talk and send you into the world to GET IT.”
