ONESIE FOR THE MONEY!
Essex antagonists EIGHT ROUNDS RAPID have unveiled a new video from their current album.
‘Onesie’ is taken from the Southend band’s acclaimed third album Love Your Work released last year through Tapete.
Directed by Henry Littlechild and Tony Burke, the video stars actor Tom Vaughan-Lawlor of Avengers: Infinity War and Peaky Blinders notoriety and is described as “a shank-sharp satire on our soulless and much-beloved Instagram-obsessed post-Brexit Britain”.
Formed in 2010, Eight Rounds Rapid take their cue from the mythical tradition of Thames Delta rhythm and blues, forced kicking and screaming through a post-punk filter via the clanking discordance of Gang Of Four to emerge awkwardly in the 21st Century beside the acerbic lyricism of the likes of Sleaford Mods and IDLES. Since 2014’s Lossleader, they routinely feature in Vive Le Rock‘s albums of the year list.
Love Your Work is available here.
