PUPPY release a clever new video for “POOR ME”. They are set to appear at Arctangent and Reading and Leeds festivals this month. Debut album, THE GOAT, out now.
“Poor Me” features on Puppy’s debut album The Goat, available via Spinefarm Records now https://puppy.lnk.to/TheGoat
Billy Price, Puppy drummer and director/editor of the “Poor Me” video, says, “Going into this video we wanted to try make a kind of nonsensical You Tube tutorial-cum-pound land Ted Talk. There’s a lot of content online (& elsewhere) that presents incredibly complex information as being very simple and easy. But, whether it’s taking apart a laptop with your bare hands, or curing insomnia through breathing exercises, a lot of these kinds of tasks are actually quite difficult to do. Certainly for us as a band anyway. But whilst you might never really optimise your wellbeing or fix the weird sound coming out of your amp or whatever, it can be kind of satisfying watching someone else fix these deeply intricate things with a Zen-like ease. It’s somehow quite calming.
Anyway, with this in mind, we wanted to try approach the lyrical and tonal themes of ‘Poor Me’ with the energy of a Youtuber conveying wildly elaborate instructions to a totally confused viewer. The resultant video may not be of any practical use at all, but it might serve as some useful distraction. Or maybe even be somehow quite calming.”
