Yard Act – “Land Of The Blind”
Next year, UK post-punk crew Yard Act will release their debut album, The Overload. So far, we’ve heard the album’s title track, and now we have a follow-up, “Land Of The Blind,” which also has a music video.
Here’s what lead vocalist James Smith had to say about the new single:
“Land Of The Blind” is a song about the art of illusion and how self-confidence can really inspire conviction in a trick. Confidence is such a powerful tool and we are so often willing to believe what we are told by the most confident people in the room because the alternative of doubting them is to exhaust ourselves labouring the point by trying to talk louder than them. Nobody wants that. Most people just want to get on with enjoying their short lives with as little stress as they possibly can. So, exhausting as it still is, closing your eyes whilst you let the mad bastards do their stupid tricks often seems the most reasonable price to pay.
