'Freezing in the Sun' is a taste of what is yet to come from Clowns. The new single sees bright and jangly guitars juxtaposed with politicised lyrics and discontent. The lyrics demanding 'Tell me the fuck I am supposed to do, when I know my taxes are paying for kids to be held in Nauru', coupled with the dreamy and mesmerising choruses sung by bassist Hanny J.
Sure to get some heads banging, the music video for 'Freezing in the Sun', directed by the team at Walking Moustache, follows a young woman on a non-sequential path to assasinate a political figure, with a few problems encountered on the way.
The song and clip are synonymous in theme, but don't let a sombre tone drage you down! it'd be impossible for Clowns to create anything without some light-heartedness. The video also features cameos from Wayne "Slatts" Slattery from King Parrot, Nikki Brumen from Pagan and comedian Johnathan Schuster and of course all the Clowns band members!
coming along for the ride are hellish femme-shriek punk outfit VOIID to make your face melt and your boyfriend cry. Forming in their bedrooms and coming together to annoy the shit out of their neighbours with thrashed garagepunk noise, members Anji (vocals), Antonia (bass), Jasmine (drums) and Kate (guitar) resonate with each other's mutual interest of all that is female and screaming profanity. VOIID are a perfect match for the unapologetic punk sound of Clowns career, spanning over 8 successful years, each band have solidified themselves as unstoppable forces.
