There is so much to say about this video it’s hard to know where to start.
Well, there’s the fact that ‘Covered in Chrome’ is one of the best songs of the year, engaging a hyper-drive of dirty rock n roll with a chorus that will beat the shit out of you and make sure you enjoy it.
Secondly, there’s the explosive nature of the clip, the one-track following the band around what looks like a deserted but fucking mental house party that the majority of the world is pissed they didn’t get invited to.
Finally, there are the cameo’s from two of our Northern cousins best bands, enacting their stereotypes with ear-to-ear smiles. There’s Simon from DZ Deathrays replaying his infamous role in ‘The Mess Up’ video, and Danny from Dune Rats rocks a shirt that summarises the Duniess pretty well, as he lights a Hills Hoist on fire. There’s even a subtle shout-out to Violent Soho’s upcoming tour buddies Straight Arrows via a t-shirt on Luke.
Overall, it’s impossible to say where the video stops kicking ass, and starts becoming legend.
