Watch Asylums’ New Video For Catalogue Kids

Southend alt.rockers Asylums have released a video for their new single, Catalogue Kids.

Asylums have released a proper full-on rock’n’roll music video with a twist” for their latest single, Catalogue Kids.

Of the track, which is out now on Cool Thing Records, frontman Luke Branch explains: Catalogue Kids is the thematic microcosm to our new album. I became a father during the writing and recording of the album, as I contemplated this awesome new responsibility the country seemed to be in a state of complete chaos and disorder both politically and socially. It left me with some big existential questions both in my interior world and the wider exterior world, you can feel some of that in Catalogue Kids.”

Meanwhile, director Andrew Delaney adds: I wanted to make a proper full-on rock’n’roll music video with a twist, with intelligence and a point of view. The theme of anonymity came out of conversations with Luke about surveillance capitalism, about identity being turned into product. Anonymity, particularly a self-imposed form, is now an act of defiance. We used images of the band as kids to represent innocence that then becomes distorted, scratched out until they shift and become prototypes for the anonymous’ Asylums.”
