Britain's Hookworms are releasing a new album, Microshift, on February 2 via Domino. Previously they shared a video for its first single, "Negative Space." Now they have shared a video for another new song, "Static Resistance." Ciaran Lyons directed the video, which features lots of quick close-up cuts of a man's life against an orange background. It shows the cycle of modern life, as a man tries to lead a healthier lifestyle before falling back into old habits again. Watch it below.

The band issued the following statement about the song: "'Static Resistance' is the oldest track on the album, we wrote and recorded the first version of it in early 2015, not very long after The Hum had been released. It's one of only two pre-flood songs on the record. It's a song about the wax and wane of depression and an eternal want to escape the life you've built."

Microshift is the band's third album and the follow-up to 2014's The Hum. Whereas their previous two albums were built off the band's live sound, the new one is more of a studio affair. But the band's studio was devastated during the River Aire floods in Leeds in the winter of 2015. Thanks to a GoFundMe campaign and help from volunteers the studio was rebuilt and the album was recorded.

Hookworms' MJ (all the members just go by their initials) had this to say about the album in a previous press release: "All of our records are to an extent about mental health. Largely this is an album about loss but also about maturing, accepting your flaws and the transience of intimacy."
