Video Premiere | Start Static – Need The Rush

Start Static are exclusively streaming their new music video via Love Music; Love Life.

While packing in as many live shows as possible, the band has been constantly working on new material since the release of their 2015 album ‘Arguments’.

Towards the end of 2016, they teamed up with Bruce Rintoul (Twin Atlantic, Eliza and The Bear) at 45 Aside Studios to adopt a new approach to their recording.

Due for release on March 3rd, ‘Need The Rush’ was the second track recorded as part of these sessions.

Speaking of the new single, frontman John Allan said: “‘Need the rush’ is a self-help guide to those with the fear. We all get it, and the verses were written as a way of trying to make sense of it all. It’s about second guessing everything you do, and giving yourself a hard time, but then a moment triggers all that to vanish. You become carefree again.

“It deals with the devil and angel on your shoulder. We all do things we regret, but what if we needed them to happen? What if our subconscious really needed that to happen and now your conscious self is beating you up about it? It’s about the big balance. Giving yourself a break and rolling with the punches.”

The video for the single was filmed, directed and produced by the band within just one day of filming.

Speaking of the concept of the video, drummer Michael McCrossan said: “It was something I was keen to do for a few reasons, we all live our lives out so much on Facebook and Social Media today that I thought it would be really cool to do something like this and almost see it within itself/out with itself as a ‘third person’ type view.

“It’s another really cool concept for a video and different from what we’ve done before – probably different from anything anyone’s released before as a music video and it’s great!”

‘Need The Rush’ is another top track from the Glasgow indie rockers who we reckon are set to take off this year.
