ONE of 2019’s most promising bands, Anteros, have once again proved their creative nature in revealing the colourful, cinematic video accompaniment to their latest single, ‘Drive On’.
Taken from their forthcoming debut album, ‘When We Land’, ‘Drive On’ is the idealistic representation of Anteros’ infectious sound. Blending the swooning elements of 1980’s indie, like the Go-Betweens with pure pop perfection to create a sound that is not only catchy, but is increasingly interesting with every verse and chorus. This intriguing blend has been mirrored in their latest video.
Co-directed by Vasilisa Forbes and Anteros’ frontwoman Laura Hayden, the video deals directly with an issue the band are striving to tackle, the overwhelming impact of plastic on the environment. Since reading and researching more and more on the issue, Laura was moved and inspired to write, produce music and perform in a totally new way; making their products, live shows and music videos as environmentally-friendly as possible. Through sheer cinematic and creative instinct, this video tackles the issue in a manner that seems almost playful, but constantly links back to the detrimental impact of plastic.
Laura said, “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 this video.”
‘When We Land’ will be released on Distiller Records on March 22nd.
