RVG have just released ‘Midnight Sun’ off their upcoming album, ‘Brain Worms’ which will be out on 2 June.
The single features the band’s signature guitar onslaught and Romy Vager’s passionate vocal delivery, furious yet wistful as she rails about inaction around climate change.
“I wrote this around the time of the Australian bushfires in 2019 when it felt like everything precious about this country was being destroyed by climate change. There were all these talking heads trying to play down how much of a disaster it was, instead focusing on how much they hate immigrants or queer people. I thought – the world is literally on fucking fire, and this is what you choose to use your platform on? The song is contrasting these two things, and how sick we are ideologically that we can’t identify what real problems are.”Romy Vager
‘Midnight Sun’ comes with a single-take video shot in Melbourne’s Templestowe, directed by Oscar O’Shea (Tropical Fuck Storm, CLAMM, Civic).
