Music Videos on my Mind- Slaves’ “Hey”

Slaves are a two-piece band that comes from Kent, England. They are loud, like seriously angry and loud, but it’s done with such self-aware gusto that you smile at the comedy of it.
The music video for Hey is drenched in swathes of lacquered black humour, instantly registering as one of the most entertaining clips to be produced by the UK music industry this year. Its tongue is firmly in cheek as band mates Laurie and Isaac accost some smugly suited thirtysomething in a demented assault of verbal and visual intimidation.
Think of it as counterculture millennials getting their own back on the Gen X sell-outs.
