As the release date of their debut album Hello Phantom (October 27, Venn Records), Watford’s Gold Key have revealed their latest single Kerosene!
Vocalist Steve Sears says of the track; “Kerosene is about isolation and feeling as though you have nothing in common with the people that surround you. It is a seriously unhealthy mindframe to have and I think the song addresses that too. It is much easier to isolate yourself from the real world than to face it and contribute something meaningful to it. It’s a dangerous spiral to start heading down. The video features my two favourite things – Space, and not having to appear in a music video.”
Guitarist Laurent Barnard adds; “Our buddy Rusty made the first two Gold Key videos. For ‘Kerosene’ we wanted something a bit more unconventional. Rusty came up with the idea of this Ridley Scott inspired space theme. The lyrics bring to mind a sense of isolation and what’s more isolating than orbiting your home planet on your own”
