Released last Friday, October 5th, via London-based label Slowfoot Records (with purchase options available here), Bunny is the new ten-track release from the UK’s alternative avant-rock trio, Snack Family. The group’s debut full-length studio recording, which follows EPs Belly and Pokie Eye, sees the band continue to push sonic boundaries and flirt with the intersection of droning avant-jazz and dystopian punk.
Together James Allsopp (saxophone), Andrew Plummer (vocals, guitar) and Tom Greenhalgh (drums), create quite the racket and we’re stoked to be debuting the music video for their “Automated Lover” single. Speaking of the tune and video thereof, the guys commented as follows:
“As big fans of Jordan (Copeland’s) singular vision in his directing and editing of videos, and having previously worked with Jordan and his production company TENENTNET we gave Jordan a copy of the album and asked him to pick a tune he’d like to cut a video for. Straight back Jordan picked ‘Automated Lover’ with a ton of ideas about its meaning, references and where he’d want to take it visually. With its triptych-smart-phone-aspect, Jordan has totally nailed the modern day dystopia and impotent rage of the song. It’s a wonderfully crass, crude and absurd rag bag of obscure cultural references that converses with the music and amplifies the ‘Big Brother’ voice.”
Go on… you know you want to. Hop along to the Bunny stream!
