Video of the Moment #2271: Get Inuit

By on Thursday, 26th January 2017 at 6:00 pm

Kent’s dirty poppers Get Inuit have a new single out, perfect to kick the new year in the arse. ‘Barbiturates’ is rather deceptive, because as the song begins and through to about the minute-and-a-half mark, you’re wondering where the band’s usual roar comes in. Well, you’ve been patient up to this point, and it’s time for them to reward you. Frontman Jamie Glass says of the track to Clash that they “wanted to write a song that could contain a theatrical contrast of ferocious guitars and silence. Skin-crawling screams and pitiful whispers. Manic episodes and tranquility.”

The class of drug that gives the song its name is famously known to cause changes in mood, and Glass’ lyrics uses them as a metaphor for psychological behaviour where people suppress their true feelings. How this video for the single culminates is rather disturbing, but considering we’re going through trying times to say the least, I suppose seeing things play out in a comical way is better than acting out for real. Just as Glass says the song is about. Watch the promo for ‘Barbiturates’ below; for more on Get Inuit on TGTF, follow us here.
