The Blinders Unleash "Swallowing Static" Music Video

Manchester-based alt-rock band The Blinders have unleashed the video for their latest single “Swallowing Static“, via a music video.

The song is part of our current playlist and is taken from their upcoming album ‘Beholder‘, out on March 1st via A Funhouse Recordings / EMI. Pre-order your copy here

Beholder shares a frenetic energy with their previous albums but there’s a new depth both lyrically and musically to the album. Launay and Greenspan’s astute rock production adds wider atmospheres and sophisticated textures and lyrically the band effortlessly marry angry social observations with a personal desperation which sees Beholder sweep rollercoaster-like through minimal then maximalist twists and turns.

Speaking about it, the band said:

Swallowing Static is a song of surrender. An acceptance of where you’re at, knowledge of what you are doing is probably wrong but with inability or unwillingness to change anything about it. Just suck it up. It’s stuck somewhere between longing and loathing. It doesn’t really answer anything. It only says what it sees.
