VIDEO NEWS: Puppy Release Video For Latest Single ‘Shame’
Puppy have released a video for their latest single Shame, taken from their upcoming album Pure Evil.
“In the studio, we as a band were all really excited about the song Shame, because it kind of presented the perfect distillation of what PUPPY are all about; big, dramatic musical themes built around a more vulnerable, introspective core. It’s probably one of the more sad songs we’ve put out, but also has this powerful bass & drum groove, with duel, harmony guitars that sound a bit like Randy Rhoads era Ozzy, played by an over excited teenager in their bedroom,” the band explains.
“It felt important to approach the video in a similar manner – to present grandiose imagery in a way that still felt raw & a bit sad. For our album, Pure Evil, we’ve tried to utilise an aesthetic that feeds off lo-fi fantasy imagery and cosplay subcultures; nestling ourselves & our album into a strata of geekdom that projects out into multiple alternate realities, from the lugubrious comfort of your own bedroom. Shame kind of feels like a neat crystallisation of these ideas. We filmed it with our drummer Billy’s 8-year-old brother Sonny and both we & he are all very excited to finally put it out.”
Pure Evil is due for release on 6th May via Rude Records, available to pre-order HERE.
