South London post-punks GIRLS IN SYNTHESIS have unveiled another video from their forthcoming new album.

'My Husband' is taken from The Rest Is Distraction, the follow-up to their 2020 debut Now Here’s An Echo From Your Future, and features guest keyboards from former Fall member Eleni Poulou.

“I wrote it from the angle of someone living with a physically abusive partner, and the fear, isolation and anxiety they manage daily," explains vocalist and bassist John. "I see this as a key track on the record. The intensity is created through minimalism, rather than full on noise. It’s a hard thing to pull off. And I think we really did.”

“With the video we really tried to capture the tension that hangs over the song," adds guitarist Jim. "That isolation and vulnerability, with it being too literal. The subject matter of the song must be treated with respect, and we did that by presenting the viewer with a series of images that frame the outside world that exists alongside their internal, domestic reality.”

Set for release on 14 October through the band's Own It label via Cargo, The Rest Is Distraction is available to pre-order here.
