Sea Power are today sharing the video for their latest single “Two Fingers”. Announced last month – and now A-listed on BBC 6 Music – “Two Fingers” is the lead single from forthcoming album Everything Was Forever, set for release on 11 February 2022.
Pre-order the album Everything Was Forever here.
Upon release, co-frontman Jan Scott Wilkinson said: “The song is part inspired by our late dad. He was always giving a two-fingered salute to people on the telly – a kind of old-fashioned drinking term, toasting people or events: ‘I’ll drink two fingers to that’, to some news item or to memories of a childhood friend. In the song it’s a toast to everyone, remembering those in our lives and those sadly no longer here and to making the world a better place. The song is ‘F*** me, f*** you, f*** everything.’ But it’s also ‘Love me, love you, love everything’ – exultation in the darkness. If you say ‘f*** you’ in the right way, it really can be cathartic, a new start.”
Jan Scott Wilkinson also directed and edited the single’s accompanying video, which he describes as an “ambiguous and open-minded exploration of footage from around the world. Both celebratory and fearful. A collage of moving images striving to overcome a narrative free emptiness.”
