Austrian post-grunge rock band Psycho Village have been around for more than a decade, having been started in 2009 by lead singer Dani Wagner. They released their first ever single in 2013, which reached the top 10 on iTunes, and the top 40 in their homeland. By the time 2019 hit they’d played more than 15o shows all around the world, and signed with Pavement Entertainment in the US, Seven Us Media Group in Europe, and partnered with Sony for distribution.
Their latest single, ‘Unstoppable’, has a fitting title for a group that has never let anything get in their way. They have always practised what they’ve preached, with the three bandmates on a constant quest to push beyond their limits despite any obstacles. And they’ve certainly had their share: tour bus fires, internal disputes, and less than salubrious reviews from critics – who cares about them really!
‘Unstoppable’ comes with a music video which tells the story of the song through a tale of addiction. We follow the dark life of Matt, a man in a black hoodie who’s one hit away from the end; despite driving a very nice car, and seemingly having a great lifestyle, he’s an addict – he has to get his fix. Scenes of Psycho Village performing intersect the clip, while we see the addict having to use his birthday money in order to pay a dealer in a alley. His brain melts colours, images and sounds as he smokes, but he knows it’s not what he wants for his life. At the end of the video Matt’s clearly changed for the better. He’s no longer wearing his black hoodie, and is instead dressed in bright colours. He receives a text message congratulating him on one year of sobriety – he’s been unstoppable!
