Boston Manor have revealed another new track from their forthcoming album in the form of “Bad Machine”, the video for which has also been unveiled today. The clip was directed and edited by the band’s very own Henry Cox, with Tom Hancox in the role of DOP, and is a very “film noir” look at the their hometown of Blackpool.
“When we composed the song we already had accompanying visuals in mind for it and when recording the album we had films playing in the background that we thought would match up with the sounds we were making,” says Henry. “We knew we wanted to capture some of the sleaziness of the track & condense the video down to a sequence of ‘moments’, almost like a movie trailer. The song has such massive differences in dynamics between the verses & choruses so it was important that we captured that in the video.” The video was filmed over the course of three night shoots in Blackpool this summer.
Produced by Mike Sapone (Taking Back Sunday, Mayday Parade, Public Enemy), Welcome To The Neighbourhood is a soundtrack to disenfranchisement set in a fictionalised version of the band’s hometown. The world that Welcome To The Neighbourhood inhabits is an unapologetically bleak one, a world rife with poverty and drug addiction, boarded up shops and a population unable to escape a predicament they didn’t even know they were in.
