The Divine Comedy have released their new video for ‘Queuejumper,’ the lead track from their upcoming album ‘Office Politics’.

Inspired by a near miss on the M4 in Ireland, ‘Queuejumper’ was described by the Sunday Mirror as “Classic Neil Hannon – a xylophone driven jolly pop tune matched with biting, satirical lyrics.. It is ridiculously catchy.” The Sunday Times said “A song whose jauntiness cannot disguise the rage and contempt that fire it.” The video was directed by Jack Lightfoot for Blindeye Films, and was inspired by music videos of the late 70’s and early 80’s, using an original Sony BVP3A Video Camera to give an authentic period look.

 

 

‘Office Politics’ is set for release on June 7th.
