London alt-indie/post-punk band Blue Statue explore existence, trust and freedom in their new video for “So to Speak”. The video is for the track taken from their recent Double A-Side single “V.F / So to Speak” which dropped on October 23rd and is quickly seeing the band being lauded as one of the most exciting new bands on the London rock scene.

The band had this to say about the inspiration behind the song: “part of the video is about being caught in a loop and to be careful what you wish for.”

Heavily influenced by the great bands of the garage-rock, post-punk and noise-rock persuasion, and having previously worked with the likes of legendary producer Joe Foster (Jesus & The Mary Chain, Primal Scream, and My Bloody Valentine), inspiration is also drawn from looking out into a world of art and philosophical enquiry to bring eternal themes such as existence, trust and freedom into the context of modern life.

The double A-sided single is out now and you can pick it up here.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
