Black Country, New Road have just shared a video for their latest single “Concorde”, the third track to be taken from their second album, “Ants From Up There”, which will be released on 4th February via Ninja Tune.
The new video, which you can watch here, was directed by Maxim Kelly and saw the band collaborate heavily with independent production company Caviar. This marks the first video of it’s kind from the band with sci-fi b-movie themes and featuring a number of surprises.
Speaking on the video, Maxim says, “On the surface, the concept was straightforward, a walking video: An Ant from “up there”, sings Concorde.
"It felt right to take an analogous approach with the visuals, throw as many references together as possible and see if we, too, could get it all to hold together as a piece. We took the 6 minute+ runtime as an asset. It gave us the time needed to weave as much as possible into the film. A walking video in parts, but also with a narrative running through. We combined miniatures with VFX, and flanked the film with Archival footage".
"The band were so supportive and amazing. They gave us the encouragement to just go off on one! And being a massive fan of their music, it was a genuine pleasure to work with them on this film.”
