Twin Atlantic have released the music video for their new single Bang On The Gong, marking the start of a new musical chapter for the band.

Directed by Nick Afchain, the video sees vocalist Sam McTrusty as the presenter of the ‘Bang On The Gong’ fictional variety show. McTrusty says: “We let the director Nick Afchain take the lead and he imagined “Bang On The Gong’ as an old seedy 70’s TV show. It’s very tongue-and-cheek, which matches the song because the track doesn’t take itself too seriously. It’s been so much more relaxing letting people who inspire you take the reins, instead of others doing it for you, and it allows for everyone to feel much more invested in the project. I could taste the cigarettes for about 3 days after the shoot! 90% of the people in the studio that day were some of my best mates, which was a new experience. I felt really proud of everyone involved on a personal level.”

The band’s bassist Ross McNae directed the video and explains: “Taking more than a little influence from a recent movie, the possible narrative of our video highlights the fleeting nature of success, while also shining a light on how far we’ve come as a society since those days. After eighteen months of turmoil is there any other way to play the visuals than to have fun and not take life too seriously?”
