Vulgarians – Dead People Are Easier to Love (Official Music Video)
A high-octane experience as we watch the downfall of a clown set to some intense guitar & bass riffs, synths, being paired with the lead-singer’s powerful vocal delivery.
Directed & Produced by Matt Molson Performed by Mark Pollard as ‘Just Another Sad Clown’
Hull’s Vulgarians are today sharing the video for their Radio 1-supported new single ‘Dead People Are Easier to Love’, which comes produced by Alex Greaves (Avalanche Party, The Orielles, Bo Ningen) – watch the video here. The new clip, which observes the disintegration of a clown’s career, satirically drawing narrative from the track’s title, arrives just ahead of the band’s show at Left Of The Dial Festival, Rotterdam on October 19, 2018. Previously announced French dates will be rescheduled shortly.
‘Dead People Are Easier To Love’ sonically marks a fluent development in the quartet’s sound, turning to 80s synthesisers, Cold Cave and John Maus for inspiration. Penned just 72 hours before the band were set to record with Greaves, the new single captures a sonic and lyrical urgency that is hard to counterfeit. Speaking about the video, drummer Connor Cheesman says: “The main concept behind the video is that of a failed children’s entertainer. He’s essentially looking for a place to bury himself, so he can be loved and appreciated again – hence the title of the track. He searches high and low for the perfect site, but eventually finds it in an unlikely place.”
Since the release of 2016’s ‘Life’s Successful Death’ and 2017’s ‘Almost-Instinct, Almost True’, the Hull quartet have gone on to win support from Huw Stephens and Steve Lamacq (performing on Lamacq’s Introducing stage at The Great Escape), as well as touring alongside the likes of fellow Hull band, LIFE (whom they supported throughout June 2018), The Wytches, TRAAMS and Weirds. In addition, they have appeared at 53 Degrees North (Slaves, The Horrors, Dream Wife) and Another Fest (Yassassin, Heavy Lungs), ticked off a headline slot at Humber Street Sesh and secured further spots with HMLTD, Lady Bird and Protomartyr.
