Fangclub share new video for ‘High’

The single is taken off their recently released EP True Love. 

Irish rock band Fangclub have released yet another incredible video, this time in the shape of High taken from their highly personal new EP True Love, which is out now. The video was shot and directed by Nathan Barlow in six hours.

The five track EP, which was released earlier this summer to critical and fan acclaim, is a fiery collection of Fangclub’s unique brand of alternative rock.

Speaking honestly about the music and its lyrical content, enigmatic frontman Steven King said this of High: “I wrote High while on tour with The Cribs. I think they influenced my writing on this from a visceral standpoint. It’s a little more 70s in parts. We tried to use old vintage amps, mics and pedals. Alex Loring and Tom Andrews, who produced the True Love EP, also sang with me on this track. We had vocals going through a rotary speaker which added an incredible and dreamlike theme to the song. High in parts, is about allowing yourself to be used and drained for the greater good. It’’s kind of a sarcastic take on ‘misery loves company’. We made it quite a pop song too. I don’’t know why I seem to relish in that kind of hellish, happy juxtaposition.”

2018 has been a busy one for Fangclub, having toured with The Cribs, and Milk Teeth and Nervus as well as rocking the UK with their first headline tour. 2017 was a hell of a year for the band, too. Not only did they release their self-titled debut album to mass acclaim but they also toured the UK and Ireland with their own headline dates as well as playing shows with Biffy Clyro, Muse, Pixies, and SWMRS.
