Watch Boston Manor’s New Video For Plasticine Dreams

Boston Manor have released an animated video for their powerful new single, Plasticine Dreams.

We’re less than a month away now from the release of Boston Manor’s amazing third album GLUE, and the band have just given fans another taste of what to expect from it with new single Plasticine Dreams.

Frontman Henry Cox explains that the new track is “about the throwaway culture of media. How art is treated as content’; one minute something is plastered everywhere you look and the next it’s faded into obscurity. I also feel like because it’s so easy to go viral now it also encourages people to make ‘content’ rather than art. We’re getting so much information constantly thrown at us that nothing is really absorbed or appreciated, you just click next when it’s finished.”

Of Plasticine Dreams’ excellent accompanying video, Henry continues: “We wanted something really different for this video. The song kind of has its own thing going on within the context of the whole album and we’d always wanted to do an animated video because it allows for a new level of artistic expression, not confined to what we can create in ‘reality’. We were able to sneak a bunch of easter eggs into the video – nods to loads of BM history and also the themes of GLUE. We’re really happy with how it came out. A lot of work went into making it. We invite people to find all the easter eggs and references!”

GLUE is due out on May 1 via Pure Noise Records. Watch Plasticine Dreams below:
