(SXSW 2015 flavoured!) Video of the Moment #1738: Carl Barat and the Jackals

By on Saturday, 7th February 2015 at 10:00 am

In less than 2 weeks’ time, we’ll be able to get our hands on the debut album from Carl Barat‘s latest musical project with his new band the Jackals. Following on from the release of lead single ‘Glory Days’ (watch the previous Video of the Moment feature on the song here), here’s the NSFW video for ‘A Storm is Coming’. (It’s NSFW because of the bare-chested women shown on a black and white tv, which was a relief to me after that excessively violent Kooks video last year.) Viewers have pointed out that it appears to be a homage to the 1920s German film Metropolis; regardless whether or not you’re a fan of foreign film, it’s got a classic sound that supports the Independent’s insistence, “If you like the Libertines you will like this”. Watch it below.

‘Let It Reign’ sees its release on Cooking Vinyl on the 16th of February. Carl and his new band will also be making their way across the pond to play at SXSW 2015, in the midst of a string of North American dates.
