METZ’s new album Atlas Vending is due for release on October 9th via Sub Pop Records.
Canadian noise rock outfit METZ have shared yet another stellar single from their upcoming album Atlas Vending. Titled ‘Blind Youth Industrial Park’, the song is a typically raucous and direct slice of noise rock with a quite disturbing and arresting dystopian video.
The video was directed by Dylan Pharazyn and shot in Queenstown, on the South Island of New Zealand. Pharazyn had this to say about the video: “I started thinking of the feeling of war or samurai films, beautiful but dark and violent… but then I had this idea to work up a more unique world… I started to think of a more futuristic setting — more unusual and dream-like with the story set on a distant planet where there is future technology and some kind of alien magic… like a futuristic fable. I loved the idea of the hero Ayeth on this nomadic walk through an epic landscape… I loved the strength in her and the pairing of her with a wounded companion, something really human and vulnerable… I wanted that emotive warmth countering the cold military images.”
