October Drift Unleash "Blame The Young" Music Video

Taunton indie rock/alt four-piece October Drift have unleashed the video for their latest single “Blame The Young“.

The song came out last month (April 17) and is a taste of the band’s forthcoming third album due to be released later this year. Grab it here.

In a previous press release, frontman Kiran Roy said of the track:

“Denial is the best friend you could ever have. It’s a defence mechanism to avoid stress and anxiety but in doing so, ignores reality. This song works on an individual level – “why am I not where I want to be in life?” You avoid talking or even thinking about the issues – your relationships, alcohol, drugs, grief – whatever it is. You deny asking for help, you bury it deep, but it’s going to bubble up unexpectedly and uncontrollably. This attempt to escape pain in turn creates more pain. It’s about blame, on that personal level, but also on a wider picture socially and politically – the housing crisis, the food crisis, poverty, the unravelling of the NHS. Whether it’s blaming the young, blaming immigration. Climate denial while there is sewage in our waters… Our pasts, our futures, culture wars, actual wars  – passing the blame and denying realities happens all the time.”
