Mulleted punk legends from down under Amyl & the Sniffers just released a heavenly new video for ‘Guided by Angels’. Frontwoman Amy Taylor’s frantic energy fuels this beautifully shot mini-movie, which takes us on a day out with the band – Amy dancing and shadow-boxing furiously out the the car window, under an overpass, round a storage facility, and around a squat – while the lads chill louchely.
Heavenly / good energy / and bad energy / I’ve got plenty of energy
She certainly has, and we love it.
The single is a delicious taste of forthcoming album Comfort to Me, due out 10 Sept on Rough Trade Records.
“If you have to explain what this record is like, I reckon it’s like watching an episode of The Nanny but the setting is an Australian car show and the Nanny cares about social issues and she’s read a couple of books, and Mr Sheffield is drinking beer in the sun. It’s a Mitsubishi Lancer going slightly over the speed limit in a school zone. It’s realising how good it is to wear track pants in bed. It’s having someone who wants to cook you dinner when you’re really shattered. It’s me shadow-boxing on stage, covered in sweat, instead of sitting quietly in the corner”Amy Taylor
