Melbourne-based outfit Void Of Vision have teamed up with Thornhill’s Jacob Charlton for a powerful reimagining of “Year Of The Rat” from their 2019 effort, Hyperdaze.

As Charlton gives the track a wholly fresh vocal perspective, he also stars in a bloody music video that’s as intense as it is intriguing.

Void Of Vision vocalist Jack Bergin explains:

“About five years ago, Jacob approached me after one of our hometown shows and asked if I wanted to do guest vocals on his new, up-and-coming band’s track. I’m pretty sure I said yeah, but forgot all about it until a good half a year later when our videographer Cian called and told me I had to come down to do guest vocals on this band that he was working with. The band in question ended up being Jacob and the rest of Thornhill tracking their debut EP, so I’m glad I listened to Cian for once,” he laughs. 

Charlton adds:

“Jumping on this track was kind of like a little break for us both where we had the opportunity to build on something that had already been created. Aside from that, I was honestly super stoked to be a part of the project in general, VOV have always played a special part in Thornhill’s history, so it was very cool to be included on a special part of their history.”
