Review: Kasabian’s single/video “Call” – Release date February 21, 2024

Kasabian, one of the UK’s best and biggest bands, are back and on fire with an explosive new studio album Happenings out July 5th on Columbia Records.

Happenings is their 8th studio album and one of their best yet as lead single ‘Call’ sets the tone with its huge, popping, weaving synth riff, flavoured with backing chants and chiming grooves. ‘Call’ was the first song Serge Pizzorno wrote for the album and it sets the vibe for the delights that follow.

“This was the launchpad,” frontman Serge explains. “Quieter on the verses, loud for the chorus – it’s dance music! The first bit is where you get ready, the second bit is where we all go crazy. It’s really fun and just feels like now. When I finished the track, I felt I wanted to go to a gig by whoever was behind it. Everything for this album was informed by that way of working.”

Shot by director duo Waxxwork, the video features a phone falling out of a plane and hurtling through the sky. Shot in Albania, where aerospace laws would allow, sky-divers jumped out of a helicopter with the video playing in real time – portraying an energetic, high-powered performance of the single.

ROCK AT NIGHT SAYS: Kasabian’s single “Call” will have you dancing and putting this song on repeat. The video is very creative as we see images of the band members on a cell phone as it is falling from the sky to earth. Who would think to do this? Their are visions of bobbleheads of the band are neatly placed on the helicopters dashboard. Very original.
