(6 Music Festival 2016 flavoured!) Video of the Moment #1992: Suede

By on Friday, 22nd January 2016 at 6:00 pm

It’s funny how you may be introduced to a band seemingly randomly, and then it turns out that said band becomes increasingly important to your existence as time goes on. It was years ago when I was in uni that a friend told me I should check out one of her favourite bands, Suede. Suede weren’t a band that was played on DC area radio in the ’90s (or if they were, I must have missed them), and it wasn’t until they’d broken up post-2002’s ‘A New Morning’ that I’d investigated their music with any gusto. Fast forward by a decade and these days, Suede is celebrating a revival in popularity, fuelled by the strength of their 2013 comeback album ‘Bloodsports’.

Today sees the UK release of ‘Night Thoughts’, and the latest video from Brett Anderson and co. Despite the return of Suede’s anthemic brand of jangly guitar rock, the promo that goes with ‘No Tomorrow’ shows the desperation of an obsessive-compulsive sufferer that ultimately leads to a sad, fatal end. I’m not sure if I am more upset that the band are using such a story to ‘sell’ their song, or if I’m glad that they’re showing what is all too real for the people of the world who suffer from anxiety and what they’ve done is a public service. Have a watch below and decide for yourself.

‘Night Thoughts’ is out today in the UK; its American release comes in a week, on the 29th of January. Suede have been announced as a Saturday headliner at the 6 Music Festival 2016 in Bristol in February; read more about the festival line-up in my preview of the 3-day event here.
