The Barcode Bandits are a South African trio dealing in powerful rock that explodes out of each song they perform. The band feel that music is the best medium for them to express their views and emotions, and this is obvious through their commanding stage presence.
Today sees the release of their new single and video Devil On My Shoulder. An angsty track which grabs you by the ears and drags you in, a tempo changing monster with excitement and horror coursing through each riff and drumbeat. From screeching vocals to in-your-face anger trying to all escape the speaker at the same time. This is where the fun begins, and it only gets better from there.
“If you like the feeling of goosebumps and creepy crawlies running through your veins, then this music video is the full package. With this concept, we display how by living our daily lives inches us closer to the monster we so desperately want to avoid. The seriousness of the subject matter is belied by the obvious fun we had creating this beast. The devil is always around the corner, always enticing you with delicious little titbits of gratification while you’re lured in closer and closer to his claws.” Explains the band.
Devil On My Shoulder is available now from all digital platforms including
