VOLK – “I Fed Animals” (Video Premiere)

Today I’m thrilled to share with everyone the premiere of the latest single and music video from VOLK, called “I Fed Animals.” VOLK is Nashville indie-rock duo Eleot Reich (drums, vocals) and Christopher Lowe (guitar, vocals). For those unfamiliar with the artist, VOLK fits somewhere within the same style of Yeah Yeah Yeahs and The White Stripes. The song comes from VOLK’s new EP Stand The Test, out everywhere music is sold on April 28th. Reich shared this about the single, “I originally wrote ‘I Fed Animals’ in the makeshift living room of a traditional East Berlin apartment, coal heater and all. It was located in a ‘hinterhof’ so damaged by water, the only tenants were me and my raging alcoholic neighbor who loved to blast techno at four in the morning. I was an inspired twenty-four year old falling in love with the blues as my gateway to songwriting, celebrating my own independence and sexual freedom.” The director of the video, Patrick Pierson, also shared, “’I Fed Animals’ is a mix of every beloved genre that you accidentally rented and loved at a video store. It’s punk, it’s country, it’s cyberpunk, Kung-Fu and anime. It’s a Willy Wonka concoction that can’t be defined, yet it doesn’t want to be anything else. Just like the band, VOLK.” Welcome to the world of VOLK.
