Directed in monochrome by Andrew Delaney, Southend four-piece Asylums share new single, ‘A Perfect Life In A Perfect World’, along with its partnering video
The release precedes the band’s third album, ‘Genetic Cabaret’, due to drop on July 17.
“The sentiment of ‘A Perfect Life In A Perfect World’ has taken on a different meaning for me over the last month or so which has led to us deciding to release it now,” says vocalist and guitarist Luke Branch of the reflective track.
“Originally it was about my own struggles with low moods and not always living in the moment, thinking about how life could be all the time. Now during this period of uncertainty and profound challenge for the country and the world it feels more like a song about the future, a song about how we might want to conduct ourselves after this period of isolation and reflection. I hope very much that centres around kindness, community, creativity and compassion.”
