Sum 41
45 (A Matter Of Time)

Record Label

Hopeless Records

He’s becoming a respected specialist in the rock genre, but Lewis Cater’s video is more than an intense band performance by those emo vets Sum 41.

Interweaved with the band there is also a satirical narrative about the election of a new type of politician in the UK – Cosmo, the first computer-generated political leader. Cosmo starts closing borders, reneging on climate change agreements, and he’s orange. Remind you of anyone?

The video for 45 is all about the division in society caused by populism, exemplified by Brexit. It covers similar themes to the brilliant TV series Years & Years. And there is still room for that banging performance by the band.
