It can’t be helped but to think of Type O Negative when listening to the new track from Voices, “Last Train Victoria Line,” at least in so far as the low-register vocals. The eerily sexy nightmare-of-a-was directed by Samuel Joseph Loynes and Finnian Moore and simultaneously taps into your erotic fantasies and fear of the unknown. There’s nothing graphic about it, but the slow motion shots are seamed flawlessly with the slow, trudging pace of the song. The video premiered today at Noisey, but you, savvy Yeller, can watch it in the player above.
“Last Train Victoria Line” comes off the English band’s second album, London, and can be ordered on CD.
London‘s North American release follows an already impressive launch in Europe with Metal Hammer naming the record, “one of the most unique and ambitious metal albums of recent years.” Recorded at Hackney Studios during the early months of 2014, London is a challenging and fearless offering that is fitting for a band that features former members of acclaimed progressive black metal band Akercocke. “This is the first time we’ve written songs where we’ve thought about the arrangement and structure,” shared guitarist Sam Loynes during a recent interview with Terrorizer Magazine.
“Last Train Victoria Line” visually flirts with the album’s storyline. Loynes explains, “Voices always aim to bring something unique, something atypical to proceedings. A collaboration of some essential creative friends and foes, this video is our greatest audio-visual piece to date. The litter-strewn street and red brick claustrophobia of London’s East End was the perfect surrounding for the hostile yet kinetic shoot that channeled our cloaked anti-hero and, in opposition, much desired ‘Megan’ seductress.”
