Sleeper have shared the video for the first single to be taken from their forthcoming album, The Modern Age. In “Look at You Now” the band have chosen to forgo the standard mimed performance, instead offering up a timely 50’s and 60’s inspired protest video.
Describing the track and inspiration behind its video, the band said: “It’s a song about feeling disenfranchised. Politics, on every side, is pushing to the extremes, ideas we thought we’d left behind in the 20th century.
“When we were putting together the artwork for our new album we got really into film footage from the 1950s and 60s: political rallies, crap B movies, and public information films.
“We wanted to use the chaos of those images to show our political landscape in the midst of a nervous breakdown.”
“If there’s a message it’s this: chose reason and debate over dogma, otherwise we might all be a bit fucked.”
