Fast-rising UK rock band MassMatiks have unveiled a bruising, in-your-face video for their new single, “Gunning For You.”
The video gives the perfect taster of the band’s explosive live show, performing in a low-key warehouse, cut with striking imagery of frontman George Peploe’s everyman vocal delivery to camera, spitting his provocative lyrics.
Peploe, a British kickboxing champion, delivers biting social commentary, often spoken word, leaping into soaring, hook-laden melodies and taking in subjects from the naked greed of rampant capitalism to spurned ex-lovers.
Says Peploe of the single: “’Gunning For You’ was written about a guy I knew who is all bark and no bite. He thinks he’s a hard gangster, telling everyone he wants to beat me up, but when he saw me in person he couldn’t even look me in the eye.”
