VIDEO NEWS: Drones Reveal Video For ‘Territories’
Punk quintet Drones have released a video for their new single Territories, ahead of their appearance at Download Festival this weekend.
“Territories is about how bizarre I find the concept of relying on one person (and therefore parts of their personality) to represent and rule a country,” explains vocalist Lois McDougall. “Humans are fallible. When we’re growing up we’re taught to work in teams, then we’re ‘released’ into a world where we’re governed by authorities and slotted into a hierarchal structure. The pressure put on prime ministers and presidents to ‘fix things’ is in itself detrimental. They become biased, exhausted, irrational… No one person should have that amount of power, despite the nature of their intentions – It’s not good for anyone. The song also touches on the power that this person has over border control. They can either conform with the ‘them vs us’ idea, or help to break it… Or, we can fight to change the system ourselves.”
See Drones live at Download Festival, Always The Sun Festival or at one of the following shows:
Sat 15th – MANCHESTER – Metro Bar (w/ Roughneck Riot)
Thu 3rd – GUILDFORD – Boileroom (w/ Holding Absence)
