New Single “Hesitations” from Fangclub
09 May 2019 | By Ciaran Treacy
Acclaimed Irish rock group “Fangclub” are back with their new single Hesitations.
“Hesitations” is the newest single from Dublin-based rockers Fangclub, and the first track of their upcoming second album. The act of gathering up all of your fear, paranoia, addiction, love, and despair being hurled into a microphone and ripping it out of a guitar is what Fangclub do best, and they're back to show it.
Frontman Steven King said of the song:
“‘Hesitations’ is the most ferocious song we’ve written to date. It’s a heavy hitter with a lot of massive riffs. Lyrically, songs are always open to interpretation, but we will say this, the verses are an inner voice or a devil on the shoulder and the choruses are the volcanic eruptions from deep within. Heavy shit. We know. Can’t help it.”
The video for the song was filmed over 12 hours, with the band barely leaving the cramped confines of a glass box. Taking inspiration from the Japanese art-form of Kintsugi (The art of repairing objects and adding gold, or silver dust). Gold is always seen as such a coveted thing and in this video represents wealth and success, or more, how we constantly worry about obtaining these ideals and living up to social expectations. “Most of the time we were trapped in this mirror box with extremely hot lights beaming down. It was the worst case scenario for 3 Irish dudes with goth pale skin,” says Steven.
