Norma Jean have released a video for their track Everyone Talking Over Everyone Else.

The song – the title of which is a tribute to late Motorhead frontman Ian ‘Lemmy’ Kilmister – is taken from Norma Jean’s seventh album Polar Similar, released earlier this month via Solid State Records.

Explaining the idea behind the song Everyone Talking Over Everyone Else, singer Cory Brandan previously told Metal Hammer: “I guess you guys at Metal Hammer would know that the title is a tribute to Lemmy, but the song is about an abusive relationship.

“I myself was in an abusive relationship and I’ve never talked about that before. But I’m older now and I’ve got a bit of distance from it. So I felt like it was time for me to use my voice.”

On the wider album, recorded at Minnesota’s Pachyderm Studio where Nirvana made In Utero, Brandan added: “For me the biggest difference and the biggest influence on us for this record was where we recorded it.

“There is a very specific sound that comes from the live room in there. You can hear that room in those records, and it’s really cool to us that you can hear that same room on ours.

“We are joined in some way to all these amazing bands that we grew up loving, and to me that is way more interesting than trying to make something on a computer.”
