|Groove Metallers from Woking, Gutlocker, release the first single ‘SFS’ from the eagerly anticipated full length album ‘To Be Alive’. |
‘SFS’ is accompanied with a conceptual music video that see’s an antagonist, struggling with the monotonous ins and outs of everyday life, they are crippled with anxiety and paranoia. The series of events that happens during the video builds up until the antagonist finally hits the button and pushes back.
The single draws influence from real life struggles. The vocalist Craig McBrearty said “It’s about trying to keep head above water in a corporate world whilst battling your own imposter thoughts.”
‘To Be Alive’ is Gutlocker’s first full length album and is the first time we have heard anything new from the band since the release of their four track EP ‘Cry Havoc’ in 2018. The band chose to record a full length album during the first lockdown in 2020 as they wanted to use their time to write something that’s different, bigger and better than anything that has been released previously.
‘SFS’ was directed , edited and shot by Jack Maguire of Old Horse Production.
