Video Premiere: Dystopian Future Movies – Black-Cloaked

In today’s packed musical landscape, it doesn’t hurt to carve out your own sonic niche. Nottingham’s Dystopian Future Movies have certainly done this, creating an inventive strain of mutated rock, infused with doom, post-rock and more. The band’s second album Inviolate is due to drop March 2nd, but we’re thrilled to be presenting you an early insight into its sound with the official video for second single ‘Black-Cloaked’.

The track boasts a haunting atmosphere, similar to the dark yet ethereal hymns of early Chelsea Wolfe but driven by doomy guitars. Its sound will be somewhat familiar to those who heard 2017’s Time, but it refines and builds on this impressive template, hinting at what is sure to be a majestic sophomore effort. This time around, guitarist Rafe Dunn and bassist Oisín O’Doherty have joined Caroline Cawley (vocals/guitars) and producer Bill Fisher (drums), and Inviolate will be the first release on Cawley’s new label, Lasairfhíona Records. Check out this brilliant new track below.

The band will be on tour in March and May to support the album. Tour dates are as follows:

12th March – Star & Garter, Manchester
13th March – The Chameleon, Nottingham
14th March – Green Door Store, Brighton
15th March – The Exchange, Bristol
15th May – Network, Sheffield
16th May – The Cluny, Newcastle Upon Tyne
17th May – Nice ‘n’ Sleazy, Glasgow
