Having made a powerful re-entry for the year with new single ‘Does It Matter?’, Melbourne’s Clowns now present the song’s official music video.
Directed by Nick Manuell across locations in Footscray and Melbourne city, the visuals capture the hectic energy of the song itself. A song that thrives on big anarchic vibes, ‘Does It Matter?’ is the perfect track to get Clowns fans revved for the return of the Melbourne punk legends.
The music video adds fuel to the fire.
‘Does It Matter?’ is the first cut of new music from Clowns since 2019’s Nature/Nurture album. As the first of multiple new music releases from the band through their own label Damaged this year, ‘Does It Matter?’ comes as one of ‘the most Clowns songs that had ever existed’.
“We wanted to make a video that encapsulated the equal parts ferocity and mundanity of our last 12 months. Stay tuned for our guitarist Jarrod’s massive guitar moment in the final post-chorus of the song. It’s like Slashes’ epic moment bit in the Guns N Rose – November Rain film clip, If November Rain was written and filmed in lockdown…” Clowns
PRAISE FOR ‘DOES IT MATTER’
“Clowns’s latest high energy single boasts instant-sing along choruses, a bonus thrashing instrumental breakdown and bassist/vocalist Hanny Tilbrook delivering a breezy vocal hook.”
“…pointed and melodic at the same time, it’s an easy track to taken up by.”
“There’s punk, garage, anarchic energy; mixed in with some pop, rock and big sing along moments poised to rile their fans up.”
“…This might be my favourite Clowns song – it’s a heap of fun and had me craving jumping up and down at a festival again pls and thank you.”

“Indignation never sounded like such a party! Whether they’re dealing with broken strings at the gig, twisted ankles in the bowl or a flawed socio-economic system Clowns have the best time going at it with full speed.”
