Leeds rock band Yard Act have shared a new track called “Petroleum,” the latest single from their upcoming sophomore LP, Where’s My Utopia? The song arrives with a music video directed by frequent Yard Act collaborator James Slater, who also helmed clips for the band’s songs “Dream Job” and “The Trench Coat Museum.” Slater’s “Petroleum” visual stars Rose Matafeo, New Zealand comedian and creator of Starstruck. Watch the new video below.
Regarding the video, Yard Act singer James Smith said: “‘Petroleum’ finds the Visitor as she stumbles into the hideout of a fearsome Biker gang called the Utopians. She’s still on the run from the H.G.E agents. It was a lot of fun shooting this video, and a joy to watch our friend Rose Matafeo bring the leader of the Utopians to life. Though the story isn’t being told in a linear format, I hope that the journey of the Visitor through the last three videos is starting to come together and reveal that we’re working on something bigger here. More to come!”
