Anteros reveal the video for their new single ‘Drive On’ – check it out here. Their debut album ‘When We Land’ is released March 22nd on Distiller Records.
The vibrant new video, which was co-directed by Vasilisa Forbes and frontwoman Laura Hayden and choreographed by Simon Donnellon (Years & Years, Sigrid), is intended to convey the overwhelming impact plastic has on the environment. Laura was inspired to write the track after reading about the Great Pacific garbage patch, an island of rubbish which is estimated to be twice the size of Texas. Having extensively researched the detrimental impact our wasteful society has on the environment, the band are currently taking great lengths to make sure that all of their products and live shows are as environmentally friendly as possible, working alongside James Jagger’s Project Zero, one of the leading ocean conservation projects. No plastics were purchased for the making of the video.
Speaking about the video, Laura says: “We decided to use this opportunity to shine a light on plastic pollution. The misuse of plastic in our day to day lives, most of which ends up un-recycled – sitting in landfills and floating in our oceans. No plastic went to waste for the purpose of making of this video.”
‘Drive On’ precedes Anteros’ debut album ‘When We Land’ which will be released on Distiller Records on March 22nd, followed by their biggest UK headline tour to date in April. The single premiered as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record in the World on BBC Radio 1, and their recent releases have garnered consistent support from the likes of Huw Stephens and Jack Saunders. In addition, Anteros were recently chosen for Radio X’s Great X-Pectations, The Telegraph’s Pop’s New Faces and DIY’s Class Of 2019. Their widespread critical acclaim combined with impressive commercial feats (their music has amassed 9 million Spotify streams and counting, and consistently playlisted on Spotify’s New Music Friday) positions Anteros as an undeniable force to be reckoned with in 2019.
