Dublin Post-Punk Quartet Scattered Ashes Announce UK Tour and Premiere Music Video For “Feral”

Dublin’s Scattered Ashes are an abrasive and angular indie four-piece defined by urgent guitars and prophetic vocals. Their latest single, ‘Feral,‘ is a visceral scream at addiction and dependency. It delves into raw, personal subject matter, engaging the listener head-on with a swelling smouldering slow burn. We hear shades of Editors, Interpol, and Joy Division in the single, with its rousing hook and gorgeous guitar work.

‘Feral’ was recorded with producer Daniel Doherty (Fontaines DC). The accompanying video depicts an artist’s process as he creates his own version of a master work. It’s a clever metaphor for the troubled artist, and the approach is an interesting melding of visual and sonic artistic practices. We see the artist’s work from start to finish, plowing through mistakes and the hidden struggles for perfection that culminate in a finished piece, its blood sweat, and tearshed shielded from the public eye.

“We wanted to do something slightly left field with the video and have always strived to infuse art at a greater length within our work,” says vocalist Robert Dalton. “The image we chose for Ian Grouse (the artist) to paint resonated deeply with this theme of degradation: Clodagh O’ Leary’s piece speaks of temptation and desecrated beauty. Having the video capture Ian in the process of painting this image highlighted the symbiotic nature between art and music.”
