Enter Shikari Debut “Undercover Agents” Music Video

Enter Shikari told the tale of “Sparky” in a brand new music video for “Undercover Agents.” The “Undercover Agents” animated video was fan-made by George Cheswick, telling the story of The Spark album cover star, “The Machine”, and his journey to Earth to live amongst us. “The Machine” is affectionately known at ‘Sparky’ by those that work with him, having now achieved self-awareness and his own Instagram account. Watch below!

“We’re very lucky to have such talented fans, and to be able to release George’s video so soon after the ‘Take My Country Back’ fan-made film is an honour and a testament to the relationship we have with the people who support our art. We take great pleasure in being able to support theirs in return. 

As for the track itself; generally the lyrics are about “perception management” – believing what one wishes it to believe, regardless of whatever the truth may be.

We all play with truth in politics and in our personal lives, and this song is about disdain for these societal pressures and lack of sincerity.” – Rou Reynolds

“The ‘Undercover Agents’ animation was the final piece for my Major Project at university. I’m a huge fan of Enter Shikari, and their music has really helped me through a lot, so it’s great to be able to give something back.When I began working on the animation, ‘The Spark’ had only just been released and ‘Undercover Agents’ was my favourite track from the album. The story was based on ‘The Machine’ from the album cover – where had it come from? How did it end up here?The video consists of 6,480 cells of imagery and took me roughly 14 weeks to write, animate and piece together. I hope everyone enjoys it!” – Director/animator George Cheswick

Sparky himself also chimed in

“It was only a matter of time before my journey to glory was immortalised on film. I look forward to this blockbuster taking its rightful place alongside such memorable rock biopics as Ray, Liberace: Behind The Candelabra, and that new one with Mr Robot as Freddie Mercury”
