King Nun is one of latest signing to Dirty Hit (The 1975, Wolf Alice, The Japanese House, etc.). Last year the London-based 18 years old four-piece band have shared the debut track “Tulip”. “Hung Around” is a new track that shows the powerful and rough sound but with less vehemence of the first single. Watch the official video below.
Speaking about the inspiration behind the video, the band said:
“For the video we wanted something surreal, something unhinged and violent that matched its recording and our intent for its performance. We wanted a clear physical restriction to us as we were playing, as we had the video for our previous single ‘Tulip’ which took the form of the tiny yellow four walled room. A need for a restriction to overcome came from our days practicing in rehearsal rooms that were too small, too grey and broken. We went to Youth Hymns and shared these ideas. They had a rough idea with similar themes which eventually became the video we have today: a B movie inspired, David Lynch-ish looking video where we are slowly hypnotised and strangled by alien tentacles as the song progresses.”
