TIGERCUB Release New Video For 'The Divided States Of Us'
The new video is a reference to the white void prison scene from George Lucas' film THX 118, as front man Jamie Hall explains of the concept: "I see this video as a fresh slate, like we're building the band and everything surrounding it up from the ground again. We wanted it to feel like we were playing in a huge expansive digital cave. It was filmed in HD in Brighton and then I ran it through a distortion app on my iPhone and basically fucked it up so as individuals we were being divided into three parts every time the music gushes and pours. It’s kind of a visual metaphor for the recording process for the EP in a weird way." Marking yet another sharp change of direction from a band who seem hell-bent on staying one step ahead of the curve, front man Jamie Hall commented on the new single: “There are two sides to ‘The Divided States of Us’ - the literal meaning and the metaphorical. Politically I feel like things are almost 50/50 split at the moment, there’s no longer a centre ground, but it’s also about having a divided mental state internally.”
