Blaenavon shares a new music video 'Catatonic Skinbag'


Blaenavon are pleased to share the official video to accompany their single 'Catatonic Skinbag', the critically acclaimed cut from their forthcoming second album 'Everything That Makes You Happy' - out later this year on Transgressive. Directed by London based creatives Homer & Farley and premiering via Wonderland, the clip brings to life the struggles addressed in the song's subject matter.

In singer Ben Gregory's words, "The video reflects a pretty miserable time in my life. Living in a cycle of self pity and sensual self-indulgence. Harris and Frank knocking on my door but I'm too busy soaking in stagnant bath water to answer. The song is a bit of fun but the theme is pretty severe: "always tired, lacking desire to feel enough to start the day.""

'Catatonic Skinbag' premiered recently on Jack Saunders' BBC Radio 1 show as his Track of the Week, and has since been included on the Radio X playlist, championed by Annie Mac, praised by the likes of NME, DIY, The Line of Best Fit, Dork and Clash, and featured on Spotify's New Music Friday and Apple's A-List Alternative playlists, amongst others.

The song is the first taster of the band's new record, which has been produced by acclaimed Music Producers Guild Producer of the Year Catherine Marks (Foals, St Vincent, Wolf Alice). Direct lyricism meets surging guitars to create a song that not only shows Blaenavon's musical evolution but also delivers a powerful message with a newfound sense of clarity, underlined as ever with singer Ben Gregory's sharp wit.
