David Knight - 15th Jan 2018

Ciaran Lyons' latest video for Leeds rock outfit Hookworms examines a young salaryman's unexceptional  routine, in all it's repetition and its minor variations - and lack of personal interaction - with a characteristic graphic sensibility and dry wit.

After the rapid vignettes, this relentless cycle come to rest in the past 30 seconds or so, on the man's face - a picture of confusion and fear. Plenty of time to ponder on the point of it all... 

The track Static Resistance comes from Hookworms forthcoming Domino release, Microshift.
