Indie88 Premiere: Howlin’ Circus share new video for defiant title track ‘Run The Wrong Way’

A powerful new video for the anthemic track

Toronto’s Howlin’ Circus have shared a music video for their anthemic title track, “Run The Wrong Way.”

The song is about “what living in 2020 feels like,” frontman Jafar Sandouk explains. “The world is on fire, literally, and nuclear apocalypse is just a Tweet away. We’re powerless in so many ways and ‘Run The Wrong Way’ is a defiant call to reclaim some of the things we can control.” With gritty, resounding instrumental lines, wailing vocals, and powerful lyrics, “Run The Wrong Way” is a relatable track that’s sure to get stuck in your head.

“Conveying the uneasiness and indecision expressed in the lyrics, the music video for ‘Run The Wrong Way’ follows our protagonist as he faces an onslaught of the new and strange,” Director Rachel Elizabeth McKim explains in a statement. “Confronted with chaotic surroundings and the disapproval of his peers, he must find the courage to conquer overhwelming obstacles and plunge into the unknown.”
