Pendulum – one of the most iconic electronic acts of all time have finally released their first brand new music since the UK #1 selling album ‘Immersion’! The double A-side includes the massive halftime track ‘Nothing For Free’, featuring classic vocals from frontman Rob Swire that delivers the powerful rock-infused electronic music that Pendulum does best and the mighty DnB anthem ‘Driver’.
The video provides an observation on current global issues, drawing comparisons through the eyes of rabbits experiencing their own myxomatosis pandemic. The narrative sits alongside the striking 2D/3D visuals and a powerful performance by Rob Swire to the camera, which sees him stood under a beautiful glowing sun. The video was shot in London with a socially distanced crew and is directed by Lewis Cater.
Rob Swire said “The lyrics to ‘Nothing For Free’ ended up being relevant to what’s been going on in the world, even though it was written before 2020 happened. For the video, we focused instead on rabbits in a similar situation to see how it might play out”.
With ‘Nothing For Free’ the definitive singalong Pendulum anthem, ‘Driver’ hits hard as the striking, in your face drum and bass track that welcomes the band back and gets you ready for the dancefloor.
