Carl Barat & the Jackals Debut Orwellian Video for ‘A Storm Is Coming’
A month ago, Carl Barat & the Jackals premiered ‘A Storm Is Coming,’ a song from their upcoming LP, ‘Let It Reign.’ Now, the English rockers have unveiled a new, Orwellian video to accompany the track. Watch the NSFW clip up above.
The Roger Sargent-directed video depicts the group mindlessly working on an assembly line, transfixed by graphic images on a TV. The ‘1984’-esque theme is said to represent people as “controlled by being in a permanent state of fear and arousal” (via NME).
‘Let It Reign’ will arrive on Feb. 16 via Cooking Vinyl. Barat will also release an album with his other, recently reunited outfit, the Libertines, later this year.
