Taken from the album 'Age of Indignation' - out now on Fortuna POP! - September Girls have revealed their new video for 'Catholic Guilt'.
Shot using 360 degree technology by guitarist and video maker Jessie Ward O'Sullivan, the song deals with anger towards the Catholic Church, particularly from the viewpoint of being a woman. "The Catholic Church in Ireland still exerts a patriarchal force over women’s bodily autonomy, (evident from our draconian abortion laws) something which would be unthinkable in most other progressive countries. This force is exerted by the same Catholic Church who covered up years of child sexual abuse by its members." says Jessie, who shot the video in a single take using an innovative 12-camera GoPro rig. The tight-knit crew of six had to precisely choreograph their every move in order to capture the video in one take.
The video is viewable on YouTube or Facebook using 360 technology. When viewing on your PC or phone be sure to move the cursor or your mobile handset in all directions for full effect. The video also works well if you have a VR headset or Google Cardboard. You'll need to use a 360 supporting browser such as Chrome, or if viewing on your mobile, use the YouTube app. It is also best viewed in HD quality of 1080 or above.
September Girls play the Bello Bar, Dublin this Saturday (August 20) as a fundraiser for the X-ile Project, which aims to change the nature of conversations around abortion.
