Watch: OTHERKIN - React

OTHERKIN - React

Info: Home and hosed after a frantic run of gigs supporting punk-rock legends the Dead Kennedys in the UK; grunge-pop four-piece Otherkin kick on with the release of the video for their new single 'React'.

The video was shot in London and was directed by Ciaran Lyons. Who says:

"In the video, a trivial, little joke-man ends up massive, and acts like a total plum with his new-found size. He is still, at core though, a fat, old human, and his reign of terror doesn't last long. It's a pretty simple analogy."

The band add: "The world is fucked, basically. It's not like you needed us to tell you that but it's probably more to fun to hear it shouted over clattering guitars than from Sky News or your boring mate Dave down the pub. What happened last November was impossible to ignore, even if you don't normally engage in politics. It's all over your screens, all over your feeds, a non-stop shit-flinging, media blitzkrieg being funneled down your mouth at every given opportunity. We had to have a response, a reaction. 'What can a poor boy do except to sing for a rock 'n' roll band?'"

In our review last month we observed that; "'React' kicks off with a full on rock riff opener, straight out of the blocks OTHERKIN go for the nuclear option, with an early-White Denim sounding percussion hanging around a pop-rock chorus and squealing lead-guitar. The pace and incessant energy is so frantic that the track feels half of the length of its three minutes."
