Though the song melodically gives you a true blue classic rock ‘n’ roll sound, the video gets deep and bursts with imagery.
Gamblers’ “Form and Flood” video is the last release to come from their album Small World. The trio rips and thrashes on keys, guitar, and drums, presenting you with a rockin’ number bursting with energy. Frontman Mike McManus says the song is more than just a rock ‘n’ roll beat, though—it’s also a song about his difficult experience with the Catholic church.
“Lyrically, this song is an example of the influence of growing up in the Catholic church and realizing that there is a lot of darkness attached to it that isn’t necessarily clear as a child,” frontman Mike McManus says. “The song is one of our darker tunes musically and is overall heavier than most of the album as well.”
The video is a brightly colored animation of the trio with lyrics reverberating all around them. Eventually, rain falls upon them until they’re completely submerged—a biblical allusion. However, even though the water is above their heads, the band keeps on groovin’.
