VUKOVI have shared the video for ‘I Exist’, the latest release from the Scottish rockers. You can watch it exclusively below on Rolling Stone UK and check out our behind the scenes photos from the video shoot.

The lead track from upcoming third album ‘NULA’ was first unveiled last month, but the new visuals lean into the album’s futuristic themes – with singer Janine Shilstone trapped in a water tank on a colony ship to Mars.

“The theme nods towards the concept of our upcoming album NULA. It’s a colony ship en route to Mars, created by capitalist company Sanctity Corporation who have been carrying out some questionable human experiments on board,” said Shilstone of the otherworldly clip.

It also proved to be a gruelling shoot, with Shilstone spending extended amounts of time submerged underwater at Nottingham’s TankSpace – one of the UK’s premier underwater studios.

“I completely underestimated how tough this video would be,” explained Shilstone.

“Having to submerge myself to the bottom of a tank over 50 times with no air in my lungs while performing was exhausting.”

A last minute change also occurred when guitarist Hamish Reilly injured his shoulder at a festival, which meant he was unable to perform in the video.

As for the general aesthetic of the clip, Shilstone added: “I wanted the VHS footage in the video to replicate secret, snuff footage, the red and turquoise colours in theme with the album.”

The track is the first to arrive from the band’s third album NULA, which is set for release on October 7 via LAB Records.

They will also hit the road this autumn, taking in shows in Leeds, Manchester, London, Brighton, Bristol and Birmingham before touring across Europe.
