The Fat White Family have revealed the video to their forthcoming single, ‘Whitest Boy On The Beach’, the first track to be taken from their forthcoming second album.
The single, set to be released on Fat Whites’ second album Songs For Our Mothers, was shot at Beachy Head and directed by the artist Tim Noble.
The new record sees a change in direction from the south London band who chose inspiration from the United States for their debut record.
“Where the last album was very much obsessed with the United States, this album is looking more eastward, toward Germany,” organist Nathan Saoudi told the Wall Street Journal.
“It’s literally about being the whitest boy on the beach,” organist Nathan Saoudi explained.
“If it is construed as political, then I’m glad that it is. Why shouldn’t it be?
“Everything is political. Having a cup of tea is political, so a music video, it ties in nicely. The song was inspired by a completely different situation, but if the song ends up being construed as about who’s white enough to stay on the beach, then so be it.”
