Black Country, New Road Shares New Music Video for “Concorde”
- British rock band Black Country, New Road has shared a new music video for “Concorde” directed by Maxim Kelly.
The song was released last November as the third single off of their upcoming sophomore album “Ants from Up There”, which is set to be released on February 4, 2022.
It was written by Tyler Hyde, Sergio Maschetzko, May Kershaw, Luke Mark, Lewis Evans, Isaac Wood, Georgia Ellery and Charlie Wayne.
Director Maxim Kelly said of the video, “On the surface, the concept was straightforward, a walking video: An Ant from ‘up there’, sings Concorde. But, for a band who namecheck everyone from Scott Walker to Kanye West, and the pronounced mix of genres in their music, it felt right to take an analogous approach with the visuals. Throw as many references together as possible and see if we, too, could get it all to hold together as a piece.”
He continued, “We took the 6 minute [plus] runtime as an asset. It gave us the time needed to weave as much as possible into the film. A walking video in parts, but also with a narrative running through. We combined miniatures with VFX, and flanked the film with archival footage. The band were so supportive and amazing. They gave us the encouragement to just go off on one! And being a massive fan of their music, it was a genuine pleasure to work with them on this film.”
