[video] Humour – pure misery

If Humour were your friend, they probably wouldn’t miss a word of your conversations together. This ability to notice the smallest details is clearly visible in the new single “pure misery” from the young Glasgow band, where vocalist Andreas Christodoulidis in a very theatrical and satirical way underlines the problems of public speaking.

Here’s what he says about the new single: “I wrote the song about being a singer in a band, and standing up to address lots of people in a very serious way as though I must have something meaningful to relate; something the audience needs to hear. It feels a little ridiculous doing that sometimes, especially when the songs are most often just about stories or feelings. So the narrator of the song is supposed to be trying to convince the audience that he has something very profound to tell them, and he’s kind of stalling until he can come up with something”.

The sharp and nervy track would be a part of their upcoming debut EP with the same title Pure Misery set for release on November 25 via So Young Records (it would also include the previously shared “yeah, mud!” and “alive and well”). It is released in tandem with the music video directed by Luke Ainger and Fred Qvortrup, which sees the band performing outside with Andreas singing in weird locations.
