Otherkin End Fat Cat’s Reign of Terror In New Video

Home and hosed after a frantic run of gigs supporting punk-rock legends the Dead Kennedys in the UK; grunge-pop four-piece Otherkin kick on with the release of the video for their new single ‘REACT’.

The video was shot in London and was directed by Ciaran Lyons. Who says:

“In the video, a trivial, little joke-man ends up massive, and acts like a total plum with his new-found size. He is still, at core though, a fat, old human, and his reign of terror doesn’t last long. It’s a pretty simple analogy”.

The band add: “The world is f*cked, basically. It’s not like you needed us to tell you that but it’s probably more to fun to hear it shouted over clattering guitars than from Sky News or your boring mate Dave down the pub. What happened last November was impossible to ignore, even if you don’t normally engage in politics. It’s all over your screens, all over your feeds, a non-stop shit-flinging, media blitzkrieg being funnelled down your mouth at every given opportunity. We had to have a response, a reaction. ‘What can a poor boy do except to sing for a rock ‘n’ roll band?’”

‘REACT’ is the latest taster for Otherkin’s debut album, entitled ‘OK’, which will be released on 29th September.

The band will be back in the UK for the Leeds / Reading festival at the end of August, before heading off around the UK again with INHEAVEN and a run of their own headline shows. These dates will be followed by a headline European tour taking in seventeen countries, finishing in Dublin on December 15th at The Button Factory.

“REACT” is out on on all good streaming and download platforms.
