Friday Night Video: Bootblacks – Southpole

With their album Veins now out on Manic Depression Records, Bootblacks launch a campaign that includes an invasion of space and a claustrophobic bar all brought about by internal tensions. But this video all coincides to the term Bootblacks, a term coined by William Burroughs to describe the dark underbelly of New York City.

A slight tendency away from the punk aesthetics that have coincided with the band since 2010, the synths dominated throughout this new era of the band. Call it atmosphere, I would say it is definitely brooding.

The band heads out for a European tour:
