New Entry: Saloon Dion Share New Single "VHS"

Bristol avant garde/post punk/alt band Saloon Dion have released the video for their new single "VHS".

TAlking about it, guitarist and vocalist Taryn McDonnell says that “lyrically, it was inspired by a scene in ‘Better Call Saul’ where Kim [Saul’s girlfriend] is flicking through a swanky spa/hotel brochure, raises her eyebrows and says something like, ‘You know what, Saul? I am luxurious yet casual.’ The quote seemed like a fitting symbol for the absurdity of advertising and the methods used by a company to sell their product as an extension of ‘you’. The rest of the lyrics are the monologue of a character who is essentially a representation of all these corporations, their advertising methods and capitalism itself.”
