Glasgow quartet The Ninth Wave have revealed a powerful new video for their new single ‘Swallow Me’, the second from their forthcoming second EP ‘Never Crave Attention’ out April 20th on Distiller Records.
Led by frontman Haydn Park, the four-piece exhibit a flair for audacious songwriting to convey their malcontented musings, drawing on their own experiences on Glasgow’s scarce music scene and the decrepit state of society.
‘Swallow Me’ is inspired by “an observation of a dysfunctional relationship and the damage caused”, ‘Swallow Me’ raises the doubt and intruding sense of dread that is a key component of such a volatile entanglement through invasive percussion, enigmatic guitars. And this gruesome music video portrays that with the use of an 80’s camera and a run-down Russian experimental hospital feel give you that chilling effect.
Speaking about the video, the band say: “The video is a montage of everyday occurrences masked by the false image of faceless mannequins.
“Each scene depicts an exaggerated view of different aspects of our lives and the flaws within them.
“This video is a short look into these sinister aspects of daily life so commonly ignored.”
The Ninth Wave’s debut EP ‘Reformation’ was released late last year and has already garnered huge acclaim for the Scottish upstarts, with the likes of BBC Radio 1’s Phil Taggart and Huw Stephens and Radio X’s John Kennedy all championing the band.
