Carl Barât & The Jackals have revealed their newest video, Burning Cars. Taken from their new 4 song EP, Harder They Fall, which was released on Friday (May 26th) it’s the follow-up from the lead single, Sister last week.
Both videos were directed by Carl Barât and filmed/edited by Roger Sargent. In an email, Barât adds “We (The Jackals) grew up in small British rural towns and all felt alienated with no sense of belonging. The videos for ‘Sister’ and ‘Burning Cars’ allude to that feeling of being – isolated, lonely and trapped and for a lot of people that’s the way it is.” The video is a roaring ride from the very beginning. It features a cast of friends, including new band The Skinner Brothers, who hail from Carl’s hometown, Basingstoke. The track and video are maniacal and grimy, full with guitars and intermix of drums. It’s tumultuous and clamorous like how rock n roll is supposed to be. It’s evident that the Jackals are no side piece.
