Midland sludge merchants Conjurer are premiering their new video for Scorn exclusively with Metal Hammer.
Taken from the band’s latest EP I, frontman Dan Nightingale tells Hammer the song is about “reaching the end of your tether with the daily grind, trying and failing to overcome the physical and mental exhaustion of it, feeling sickened by the world around you, and ultimately having all that vitriol turn in on yourself. It’s about wanting to self-destruct.”
While the video itself doesn’t show the ins and outs of the daily grind (probably because snapshots of sitting at a desk or doing the shopping aren’t very exciting), it does add extra depth to the lyrical content.
”[The video’s] odd colours, glitchy graphics, and unsettling shots of someone choking and vomiting on god-knows-what accurately encompasses and represents those feelings of disgust and loathing,” Dan concludes.
