The Zen Arcade Release Official Brand-New Video for their Debut Single ‘Don’t Say A Word’

The Zen Arcade are a garage rock band from Cavan, Ireland who released their debut single ‘Don’t Say A Word’ out now. To celebrate they have released a brand-new video to go along with the track.

Speaking about the video shoot Pete O’ Halnon says: “The video was shot in a shed, stars the band, abuses a projector and was directed by a tripod. It showcases the latest in digital regression and artfully combines the bare minimum with low light, undoubtedly inspiring the inevitable low-resolution revolution.

Coming in at 2 minutes, 30 seconds, ‘Don’t Say A Word’ is an exercise in simplicity, intended to reflect the band’s approach to polite conversation. 

The band express how ‘Don’t Say A Word’ is a mantra for the muted millions. “Time now for the monosyllabic among us to rise up and remain silent!

Formed in late 2019 and comprised of 3 ex-members of The Strypes whose stellar rise saw them tour 3 critically acclaimed albums all over from Glastonbury to Fuji Rocks and feted by all from Jools Holland to the Arctic Monkey before calling it quits. 

The Zen Arcade likes to do it differently and birthed a podcast series and multiple fanzines before making a record but it’s been the right move. ‘Don’t Say A Word’ is out on Dental Records out now.
