Canadian quartet Preoccupations gives us a glimpse into our own mental chaos in their video “Disarray.” Directed by Ruff Mercy, “Disarray” follows the vocalist/bass player Matt walk around as we watch his face getting distorted with graphic visuals. Watch below:

“When I was writing “Disarray”, it started off with an image of a mother combing her daughters hair that came into my mind, I liked the metaphor of splitting the braids and combing through the tangles, and wrote the rest of the lyrics around that image. This song sat untouched for close to 6 months as a recording with just bass and drums before we came back to it and wrote and recorded the guitar line while out of our minds one night in the early AM.” shared Matt.

“Disarray” is from their new album New Material, which will be out on March 23rd. They will start touring soon:
