Following the success of last year’s ‘Celebrity Mansions’, which made its way into our Top 10 Albums of 2019, Dinosaur Pile-Up have shared a video for one of its tracks, ‘Round The Bend’.
The animated visual was created by Toon53 Productions, and depicts a heart-wrenching story of lost lovers and a car-ride gone wrong.
This is what frontman Matt Bigland had to say of it.
“‘Round The Bend’ is about being at the very edge of your emotional strength. I wrote it when I was at a breaking point of sorts, where I felt like what I’d been trying to make happen with the band for 12 years wasn’t in fact going to happen. When I wrote the song and whenever I listened to the demo, I’d imagine this short film playing out in my head – the story was extremely vivid in my mind and really heart breaking. Seeing yourself immortalised as a cartoon is always a trip, but the end result had us all bouncing off the walls!”

The band’s fourth album, ‘Celebrity Mansions’, is out now through Parlophone Records.
