Preoccupations Share New Video For Standout Instrumental Track “Compliance”

Preoccupations followed the critically acclaimed release of 2018’s New Material with extensive touring and are back on the round in Southern and Western Europe, see a list of new show dates below.

To coincide with their tour, Preoccupations have teamed up with director Evan Henderson to create a striking new video for standout instrumental track and album closer, “Compliance.” Watch/share it HERE.

On the video, Preoccupations say:

“Compliance – The final track off Preoccupations third studio album New Material is a fresh and stark departure for the band: a climactic wall of all-encompassing noise and awe as two tones rise above the waves of sound and reach towards the cosmos, to eternity. This video directed by Nicholas Brown and Evan Henderson explores a post-apocalyptic universe featuring an enigmatic forest spirit named “Mariah”. 

Mariah has awakened from eons of slumber to a world that has long been abandoned by humans and heavily mutated by their waste and consumption. As Mariah struggles to make sense of this new world, she grieves for the one she has lost forever. The Mariah creature was painstakingly designed and constructed by Brown, portrayed by Henderson, and captured by the haunting and beautiful cinematography of Adam Stewart. Compliance brings a close to this chapter of the band as we look towards the future and marvel at the new heights their music will take.”
