Faintest Idea Turn The Tables On Rich Elites In 'Ouroboros' Video

Faintest Idea Turn The Tables On Rich Elites In 'Ouroboros' Video

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Kings Lynn ska-punk outfit, Faintest Idea, are pleased to reveal a new video for 'Ouroboros', the final piece in a trio of feature videos that make up a short film detailing the socio-political issues faced in the UK as a result of the current Conservative government.

Faintest Idea have also announced a run of UK/EU headline dates and festival appearances for spring/summer with details below.

In the final episode of the three-part series, our plucky banker who featured in the first two videos has the tables turned on him as he's dressed in The Hunt's traditional red regalia, and chased through woodland by the band (donning fox masks) in a delicious reversal of roles.

This latest track from the rudeboy street punks is the final single to be taken from their critically acclaimed 2016 album 'Increasing The Minimum Rage' released via Manchester-based punk and ska label TNSrecords last year.

Commenting on the video, the band say: "This is the 3rd and final part in our series of music videos from the album. The series itself looks at power relations and the repercussions of political actions and the cycles they can cause, which tie in to the lyrics of this final song 'Ouroboros': Trickle down's siphoned off from the community / Scorched earth tactic of big industry / While ones halves eaten / The other half eats / And the cycle repeats. Thanks to Jamie and Pete for shooting and acting in all three."
