VIDEO NEWS: Meryl Streek Releases Video For New Single ‘Death To The Landlord’
Irish avant-garde punk producer Meryl Streek has released a video for his new single Death to the Landlord, taken from his upcoming debut album 796.
“I needed a song on the album that was a hook-line-and-sinker representing the fed-up, ordinary, working class people who have been repeatedly sh*t on for many years here in Ireland,” Streek comments.
“I’m outraged that our political parties here in Ireland are not only lining their own pockets with the taxpayers’ money—with massive salaries for essentially f*cking it up for everyone else but themselves—but that they’re also making money on the side renting sh*t, unaffordable, box-sized apartments to desperate, begging families in need. They’re scum and I’d like them all to know that I’m coming for them.”
The video for Death to the Landlord features Irish comedian Joe Rooney and Molly Vulpyne from Dublin punk duo Vulpynes.
“We wanted the video to feel like it was set in Dublin but relatable to everyone,” adds video director Peter Kingston. “We wanted it to look real, the way the city actually is. We toyed with the idea of the video being set in a circus but when Meryl came up with the idea of setting it in his local pub we knew we had the ideal set up for capturing the intimacy and emotion of the track with an angry, intimate performance.”
