South East London born LAC have unveiled their new video for their track Borstal Boy, which they are giving away as a free download via their Facebook page.
You can watch the video below.
The track is taken for their debut EP, Borstal Boy, which is due for release on 6th May 2013.
When asked about the inspiration of the single and video, frontman Michael Davies commented,
“It came from a bad experience when I was 15. I was put in a young offenders institute. When I realised they weren’t going to just let me out if I kicked up a fuss, I got down and did my time and used music as a saviour. The music teacher said about me possibly writing a poem to go up in the halls. I didn’t think much at the time but then the prisoner in the next cell, who I’d become good friends with, hung himself over his girlfriend cheating. He only had 3 weeks left. As for the music video I didn’t want to do a graphic version of the events so Warner Chappell came up with an idea that has a real 90′s sort of ‘This Is England’ vibe with a few actors.”
