Video of the Moment #2165: Blaenavon

By on Friday, 19th August 2016 at 6:00 pm

East Hampshire trio Blaenavon have a new video out for their current single. ‘Let’s Pray’ is currently making the rounds on BBC Radio 1, having been championed by both Annie Mac and Huw Stephens. Director Claes Nordwall had this to say about the inspiration for the promo:

I wanted to bring the exploitation and revenge-film style into a current scenario. Taking a loose cue from Abel Ferarra’s “Ms. 45” (1981). This cold blooded / calm tempered girl being a dystopian example of an increasingly detached youth who spend too much time online. It felt like a suitable plot for the song’s dark lyrical themes.

Sufficiently intrigued? You can watch the dark (literally and figuratively) video for ‘Let’s Pray’ below. In terms of festivals, the band have Reading and Leeds and Bingley Music Live left this summer season. In addition to support slots with The Sherlocks and The Hunna in September and October, they have a headline show lined up at London Scala on the 14th of October.
