Gaz Coombes has just released a video for the first single from World’s Strongest Man, Deep Pockets. Watch the clip via YouTube or Vevo. The self-directed, filmed and edited clip features Gaz undertaking one of the trippiest Uber-pool journeys from the back of a cab in Los Angeles. Gaz says of the clip:
“I shot the Deep Pockets video on a shoestring, mostly in LA at the end of 2017. The idea came from the lyrics & memories of weird night drives over the years – a never-ending car journey laced with paranoia, intermittent hallucinations & unexpected car pooling. I liked the idea of getting together with some fun, interesting people in a car at night, filming it all & just seeing what happened. It worked out well. They all did great.”
World’s Strongest Man is released on Hot Fruit/Caroline International on 4th May 2018. The record is inspired variously by Grayson Perry’s the Descent of Man, Frank Ocean’s Blonde, Californian weed, British woodlands, unchecked toxic masculinity and hip hop (and a whole lot more besides), it is a bold, ambitious, free-thinking, future-facing rock‘n’roll record.
