Pulled Apart By Horses – Tom Hudson (vocals/guitar), James Brown (guitar), Lee Vincent (Drums) and Robert Lee (bass) – reveal the “Italian art house inspired music video”, for ‘Lizard Baby’, a strong and mesmerizing rock number, partly inspired by the birth of the royal baby last summer and taken from their hotly anticipated third album ‘Blood’, out 1st September on the band’s own label Best of the Best through Sony Red.
Guitarist James Brown explains: “The glaringly colourful video for Lizard Baby is a visual juxtaposition of us playing, as we love to do, with some weird and wonderful ideas we came up with when collaborating with director Stephen Agnew (Drenge/The Cribs etc.).”
Vocalist Tom Hudson adds “The meandering bass line and mysterious air to ‘Lizard Baby’ goes hand in hand with the surreal, Italian art house inspired music video. Blending the iconic Dario Argento red, blue and green hued lighting alongside gonzo imagery to take us into the twisted world in which our ‘Lizard Baby’ inhabits.”
On ‘Lizard Baby’ Tom Hudson says: “I guess it vaguely touches on the media & public attention given to people in the lime light and how people can adopt alter egos or change with power. There’s also a bit of a dig at bands and performers who put on a false show or a contrived act.” In case you missed it…Here’s the video for ‘Hot Squash’. On the rather surreal video, director Sing J Lee says: “It as set beneath the quiet suburban life, we take a voyeuristic trip into a dark, nonsensical romance.”…
With lyrics partly inspired by the Paul Thomas Anderson movie ‘The Master’, drummer Lee Vincent explains: “When we were writing and recording ‘Hot Squash’ I had just watched the film. Being a massive PTA fan I was blown away as usual and feeling suitably inspired I wrote a few lines of lyrics about cults and brainwashing.
