NEW ALBUM EXCESS OUT NOW VIA STONES THROW
Automatic have released a new video for “Turn Away”, from their 2022 album Excess (out now via Stones Throw), directed by Ambar Navarro. In the video, the band is aboard a private jet when everything goes horribly wrong in the middle of the desert and they are left to fend for themselves.
On the video, the band explain “we got to work together with Ambar Navarro, our friend and director of the first music video off our album Excess, ‘New Beginning’. We have a lot of fun on set with Ambar because she gets our sense of humor and she visually adds some lightness to the heavier themes of our album, like climate change and income inequality. We become the capitalist death cult in this satirical animation of what could happen if we as a society continue on this path of excess.”
