In their budding existence, Black Country, New Road have never taken the easy way out. The 7-piece chaos punk collective’s songs are often sprawling numbers with dynamic movements and “Concorde” is no different. The single came out last November and now the can’t miss video has arrived.
A twisted sci-fi tale of a reverse alien abduction, features an alien ant (a nod to the band’s upcoming album, Ants From Up There) being taken into custody by an earthling ops team. The six and a half minute clip feels like a campy extraterrestrial short film and the music really complements both the tension in the story, and the feeling of joy as the events transpire towards the finish line.
