The new video makes a profound point...

Indian Queens have started the year with a bang.

The group played a stellar set at Rockaway Beach Festival, before linking with Cool Thing Records for a new single.

The Southend imprint is the perfect home for biting new release 'Bubblewrap', with its punk energy and its taut, on-point songwriting.

A track that deals with the current climate crisis, it rises to a crunching chorus, one that stays lodged with you for some time.

Andy Delaney directs the video, one that depicts Indian Queens being smothered in objects from a real life landfill.

A video about waste, and how our behaviour is sowing the seeds of our own destruction, it makes for compelling viewing.

"I wanted to create a claustrophobic world that’s invaded by plastic which comes alive," says the director.

"It was important that there was no reaction by the band, that the numbing nature of this artificial world has already made it’s mark. The horror of what’s unfolding is their lack of reaction, their acceptance of their fate." 

Adrian Seery's colour-grading amplifies the intensity of the clip, with 'Bubblewrap' driving its point home.

Tune in now.

Indian Queens will release their new album 'God Is A Woman' shortly - order it HERE.
