Ready Steady Die! Make The Best Of Lockdown With New Single ‘Vent’

Ready Steady Die! continue with their perfectly honed and quite frankly, a little spooky, brand of pop-folk-rock in new single, ‘Vent’.

A lockdown shot music video, recorded in black and white, Morgan Visconti plays his musical instruments on the left side of the screen, while Sam K behind huge sunglasses, intones the sombre lyrics in her crisp, pure voice.

The song follows on in similar style to their previous releases, ‘Woebetide’, and ‘Deep’, but this time the video is much simpler; yet that’s all that’s needed. ‘Vent’ sees the pair at their most vulnerable, at home, in lockdown, baring their souls, and venting about the situation in the best way possible – through the power of music.

Although they are separated from both each other and their audience, due to the ongoing pandemic, it’s been artfully done, with a stark dividing line down the centre of the two individual frames. Visconti’s infant daughter makes a sleeping cameo, while Sam K’s dog sticks close to his mistress, and is rewarded with some well-earned hugs.

Watch the video for ‘Vent’ below, and catch up with Ready, Steady, Die! and their music online on their official website.
