“Scarecrow” by TV Death
TV Death return this Halloween with the second single “Scarecrow” from their upcoming EP The God, The One and The Devil, The One and The Devil’. In the spirit of the spooky season, they also release the accompanying music video – the first chapter of the overarching horror story put together by all videos from the EP. This year the quartet has supported Frankie and the Witch Fingers, Yabba and Hallan.
Inspired by the trials and tribulations of trying to find love during the pandemic, “Scarecrow” is a potent blend of garage rock, horror pop and post-punk. With a vocal style reminiscent of Dave Vanian of The Damned, the song’s dark lyrics are delivered with distinctly sharp abrasiveness over a thumping bass line and a wacky guitar melody.
““Scarecrow” was inspired by a collection of friend’s stories of dating during the pandemic and the anxieties of catching covid in the pursuit of finding love. I had this tongue and cheek line ‘there’s scarecrow in the field of love’ describing the strange times we were going through where everyone was losing touch with the feeling of a strangers’ touch due to covid and only putting on their proper clothes to go to the supermarket.”
The video for “Scarecrow” is our introduction to the 5 part overarching storyline created from the videos from the EP all centred around taking modern societal issues and painting them with B-horror movie visuals. . Shot by Firestone Video, we are shown a young couple meeting up in a crop field during a plague, but their dreamy rendezvous turns into a nightmare as their picnic is crashed by a scarecrow in their field of love.
