Indoor Pets' video for 'Being Strange' is exactly what its name suggests

Think you've seen weird? You've not seen weird. Once you've watched Indoor Pets' new video for 'Being Strange' - then you'll have seen weird.

The clip is for the latest track to be lifted from the four piece's debut album 'Be Content', set for release on 8th March via Wichita Recordings.

Talking about the video, the band explain: "With the song’s concept revolving around the celebration of being weird, it seemed like a no brainer to have a music video that is a little bonkers. We wanted to test the boundaries of what is acceptable for a “music video” taking inspiration from the overly used “send us your fan submissions” trope. The aim was to create a video that felt homemade, with the twist that it involved hundreds of mad CGI creatures that took days to bring to life."

You can check out the video for 'Being Strange' below.

The Murder Capital: More is less

The Murder Capital are a band that arrived with expectation. Before their first track dropped, word of mouth had already begun to spread about five men from Dublin kicking up a fuss.

Feelin' hypersonic: Sam Fender

Sam Fender is a man on a mission. Already beating current ‘biggest noise on the block’ Lewis Capaldi to a Brit Award, as his debut album nears its much-anticipated arrival, the sky really is the limit for an artist not short of stuff to say.
