Crows – “Bored” [Video]

| |

A much loved act in the UK scene, Crows return with new single “Bored” as well as announcing new album Reason Enough out September 27th 2024 via Bad Vibrations, and a UK/EU tour this October/November.

Singer James Cox says on the new track, “Like so many musicians today, being off album cycle means no touring, which in turn means looking for more day-to-day work options to make ends meet. We wrote ‘Reason Enough’ in a period like this when we were all simultaneously working day jobs to pay the bills. And when we’re not touring, I become way more aware of, and susceptible to, the news cycle. Being bombarded by constant doom and gloom can create a real despondent maelstrom. With what seemed like no hope for respite, or any change to my routine whatsoever, the song ‘Bored’ came out of that cycle of waking up and not being able to shake the feeling of wanting to bang your forehead against a brick wall.”

The video directed by Manoela Chiabai (Tove Lo, SG Lewis, FLO, Depeche Mode, IDLES, Future Islands) gives a big nod to Jim Jarmusch’s Paterson, to B movies of the likes of John Carpenter, to Camberwell and Freud’s The Uncanny.

Reason Enough is their third album, and is the one the band have taken the longest to write – partly because they had to fit the exercise around working full-time jobs, but also because of the freedom that was afforded to them around this specific project, which takes the post-punk four piece’s historically adrenaline-fuelled sound into fresh territory.
