Canadian band Preoccupations will be releasing their upcoming album New Material on March 23 after a long-awaited follow up to their 2016 record.
This morning, the postpunk band shared a video for their six-minute single “Antidote”, which was co-directed by member Michael Wallace along with Evan Pierce. The video mimics the song’s reverb-heavy vibes and features edgy, black-and-white portraits of each band member.
Band member Matt Flegel says, “’Antidote’ is about humans forgetting that we’re apes, it’s about trying to make sense out of something that we’d be better off not trying to make sense of. Its about having infinite knowledge at our fingertips, but still making all the wrong choices over and over. It’s about trying to find a moment in your day where you can take a breath and remember that we’re basically all just animals bumbling around.”
