Following the singles release earlier this week, PUPPY have dropped the video for ‘Shame’.
As the band explain – “In the studio, we as a band were all really excited about the song ‘Shame’, because it kind of presented the perfect distillation of what PUPPY are all about; big, dramatic musical themes built around a more vulnerable, introspective core. It’s probably one of the more sad songs we’ve put out, but also has this powerful bass & drum groove, with duel, harmony guitars that sound a bit like Randy Rhoads era Ozzy, played by an over excited teenager in their bedroom.”
“It felt important to approach the video in a similar manner – to present grandiose imagery in a way that still felt raw & a bit sad. For our album, ‘Pure Evil’, we’ve tried to utilise an aesthetic that feeds off lo-fi fantasy imagery and cosplay subcultures; nestling ourselves & our album into a strata of geekdom that projects out into multiple alternate realities, from the lugubrious comfort of your own bedroom. ‘Shame’ kind of feels like a neat crystallisation of these ideas. We filmed it with our drummer Billy’s 8-year-old brother Sonny and both we & he are all very excited to finally put it out.”
Check out the video for ‘Shame’ below.
