Twin Atlantic have released an incredibly entertaining, tongue-in-cheek video for their new single Get Famous.

"Essentially, it’s me having a meltdown," explains frontman Sam McTrusty. "I’ve been obsessed with the Instagram account Influencers In The Wild, which captures the best and worst of how desperate people can be for online clout. Make-up tutorials, juicing, landmark tours, kissing pets, posing in all your expensive clothes… it’s all mental, but I can’t seem to pull myself away from it – I’m addicted.

"In filming this video, I also became elements of what I hate. Even still, it was fun to make and indulge in all these guilty pleasures. Keeping little snippets of setting up and failed attempts was important. Those are the darkest moments of social media that we rarely get to see."

Get Famous is taken from Twin Atlantic's new album Transparency, which is due out on January 7, 2022.
