OTHERKIN - Yeah I Know
Info: Fresh from rocking the Isle Of Wight festival earlier this month. Dublin’s Otherkin keep pushing on with the brand new video for 'Yeah I Know'. The video was directed by the freshest young lens-about-town Christian Tierney, and stars Róisín Lavelle as the girl on a bike with a baseball bat, and Ro Graham as the tattooed love boy.
Luke from Otherkin says: 'It was very important for us that the video reflected the urgent, menacing nature of Yeah I Know. We wanted the pacing of the video to match the tension that's built throughout the song and that's what we got. In the video, you never quite know what's coming next but there's a constant hum of anticipation. Something is always on the cusp of happening, and the song and video will let you know what it is at the exact same time.'
Irish fans can see them at Longitude (15th July) and Indiependence (31st July).
‘Yeah I Know’ is taken from Otherkin’s second EP 'The New Vice', which was released on Rubyworks on Friday 17th June.
Like Nirvana's 'Territorial Pissings' greets QOTSA and The Hives, 'Yeah, I Know' applies all the right pressure points from it's opening, bursting at the seams with crazed bass-lines and guitars, it soars higher and higher until you're let go of its grip. Another storming single from the boys which, alongside last years single 'Ay Ay' and the more recent 'I Was Born', is starting to make the art of grunge and rock pop song-writing seem like a cinch to this band.
