Skegss are releasing their new single ‘Under the Thunder’ and that’s the video above.
‘Under the Thunder’ was produced by Catherine Marks (Manchester Orchestra, PJ Harvey, The Killers), and the video was made by our ol’ mate by Kai Neville on gorgeous 16mm stock. If you’re reading this and the video hasn’t gone live yet, here’s what happens: Ben Reed (vocals, guitar), Toby Cregan (bass), and Jonny Lani (drums) break out from quarantine to take a day trip in Toby’s yellow commodore and wind up hooking into some psychedelic worms. Duh. The band was due to perform at Coachella this year, but it (along with everything else) was cancelled. Despite this shitty setback, the Skegss momentum has continued to build (they played their biggest U.S. shows ever last year, including a sold-out performance at LA’s El Rey Theatre). The band also migrated from club gigs to near 6,000 capacity venues in Australia, and they released Australian-certified Gold singles, sold-out tours, and garnered over one hundred million streams across their catalog. Nutts. Check the vid, or check back for the vid if ain’t live yet.
