METZ Share Video for New Song ‘Blind Youth Industrial Park’

METZ have released a new song from their forthcoming record, Atlas VendingIt’s called ‘Blind Youth Industrial Park’ and it arrives with an accompanying music video directed by Dylan Pharazyn and shot in Queenstown, on the South Island of New Zealand. Watch it below.

Speaking about the inspiration for the video, Pharalzyn explained: “I started thinking of the feeling of war or samurai films, beautiful but dark and violent… but then I had this idea to work up a more unique world… I started to think of a more futuristic setting – more unusual and dream-like with the story set on a distant planet where there is future technology and some kind of alien magic… like a futuristic fable. I loved the idea of the hero Ayeth on this nomadic walk through an epic landscape… I loved the strength in her and the pairing of her with a wounded companion, something really human and vulnerable… I wanted that emotive warmth countering the cold military images.”

Atlas Vending, the follow-up to 2017’s Strange Peace, is out October 9 via Sub Pop. Previously, METZ shared the singles ‘Hail Taxi’ and ‘A Boat to Drown In’.
