Leeds’ Fizzy Blood Release New Music Video For “Pawn”

Hot on the tail of their support on While She Sleeps UK tour, Leeds quintet FIZZY BLOOD have unveiled a new video for current single PAWN. Taking inspiration from 80s instructional tapes, the video pokes fun at the world of manufactured boy bands and features equal measures of fuzz, oddball behaviour and unhinged energy

The video for ‘Pawn’ shot on VHS and was made to emulate the style of those horrible 80’s PSA videos. I like the way that kind of corny, un-self-aware, salesmen like attitude parodies the attitudes within the mainstream music industry even today and hopefully that comes across when people watch it. It was shot within a day in an art studio in Leeds and a lot of our mates came down, dressed up and got involved in the making of the video so we had a lot of fun making it.

2017 is shaping up to be FIZZY BLOOD’s biggest year yet. The band made their second appearance at SXSW, which was followed by the aforementioned 19-date run with While She Sleeps. FIZZY BLOOD will kick off a hefty festival schedule, which will include The Great Escape, Liverpool Sound City, Camden Rocks, Download, 2000 Trees and Tramlines – with more to be announced soon.

The band is currently putting the final touches on their next release which is due later this year on Killing Moon & Alya Records.
