Sumo Cyco will release their new album Initiation on May 7, and is here to get stuck in your head today with their new song "Bystander". The song comes alongside a video directed by vocalist Skye “Sever” Sweetnam and filmed by guitarist Matt “MD13” Drake. It's a really impressive music video.
“‘Bystander‘ was inspired by the frustration of our lives turning upside down in this pandemic. I felt like instead of living my life, I was now a slave to a screen, watching the world fall apart right before my eyes, totally helpless," said Sweetnam.
"The music video depicts my character trapped in a floating house watching news events taking place on TV, and at the same time, right outside my window. This entire video was produced, filmed and edited by Matt and I in our home studio!”
Initiation is available for pre-order here.
