Following the announcement of Darkstar’s third album ‘Foam Island’, the band have unveiled the video for ‘Pin Secure’.
The video is an unsettling mixture of dark humour, social satire and a surreal bent, the director Matthew Halsall says;
“The general election result was really devastating for me and in many ways it showed the power of the traditional right wing press. The ‘hard working’ of Britain are tricked on a daily basis to hate asylum seekers, immigrants ‘benefit cheats’ tax dodging corporations or corrupt politicians. I wanted to somehow reflect the bleak, devastating reality of this in a video that could not be anything other than shocking, vile and attention grabbing.”
Darkstar’s third album ‘Foam Island’ is out now worldwide on vinyl LP, CD and digitally, as well as to stream at the links below,
