Take a look at the video, featuring artist Ian Grose, below.
Following the release of their latest single, 'Feral', Scattered Ashes have returned with a captivating new video for the track – premiering below.
The single, which has already been championed by Steve Lamacq on BBC 6 Music and Rodney Bingenheimer of Sirius XM – as well as making it onto some of Spotify's most notable punk and alternative playlists – was originally released back in September, alongside accompanying single artwork by Clodagh O'Leary, also known as 1eurofiddy.
"The track is a visceral scream at addiction and dependency – raw and personal subject matter," the Dublin band say of 'Feral'. "And the photograph we chose resonated deeply with this theme of degradation: Clodagh's piece speaks of temptation and desecrated beauty.
"We always strived to infuse art at a greater length within our work, and keeping that in mind we decided to try to incorporate this philosophy within the process for the video," they continue. "We reached out to South African painter Ian Grose (winner of the Tollman Award for Visual Art) and London based Director Jared Figgins who proposed the idea to capture Clodagh's image in real-time by recreating it through the medium of paint."
With more music on the way over the coming weeks, Scattered Ashes continue to mark themselves as a phenomenal force in Irish music – who are unafraid to blur the boundaries between art forms and influences.
