Twin Atlantic are back with brand new single ‘Bang The Gong’.
The track marks the start of a new chapter for Scottish alt rockers and is accompanied by a Nick Afchain directed music video, starring frontman Sam McTrusty and produced by band bassist Ross McNae.
McTrusty commented, “We let the director Nick Afchain take the lead and he imagined “Bang On The Gong’ as an old seedy 70’s TV show. It’s very tongue-and-cheek, which matches the song because the track doesn’t take itself too seriously. It’s been so much more relaxing letting people who inspire you take the reins, instead of others doing it for you, and it allows for everyone to feel much more invested in the project. I could taste the cigarettes for about 3 days after the shoot! 90% of the people in the studio that day were some of my best mates, which was a new experience. I felt really proud of everyone involved on a personal level.”
