UK progressive sludge outfit OHHMS have released a new music video!
The new video, for the track The World, is taken from the band’s debut album The Fool (read our review here) which is out now. Speaking about the song, vocalist Paul Weller says “lyrically, The World is a character study of a friend of mine who was so overcome by conspiracy theories that he couldn’t function in the world any longer. He began to lose his mind and was deemed by a shrink to be unfit to work because he was delusional. It started small, with a few YouTube videos about NASA and Chem-Trails but within six months he was telling me how the Earth was flat and that I was a part of the sheeple movement because I wasn’t willing to do research myself into his claims. I don’t judge him, people that are heavily into organised religion seem just as bizarre to me, but what I found fascinating was the way in which all his friends an family turned their back on him, he would have been better off telling them he had become a full time smack head. At least they would have had a point of reference to relate to him with. As it stands he is all alone in the world now and I don’t see him as much but when I do, it’s never boring, I’ll tell you that.”
