[Video] Ulrika Spacek - Full Of Men
London-based Ulrika Spacek drop their new album 'Modern English Decoration' on June 2 via Tough Love Records. Ahead of release they are sharing the video for their recent single 'Full of Men'.
Directed by Kyle Macfadzean, vocalist Rhys E explains the concept of the video: "The story behind this video started with finding an old 70s Greek cookbook when I was in Athens. One night for some reason Rhys W and I were watching old 70s cooking programmes on the internet with a disillusioned chef and we came across a woman called Fanny Cradock, this became one of the references for the video.
"This song is a swipe at masculinity and we were going to make a video quite literally full of men but we didn't want to make something too obvious so ended up flipping the idea to play on the traditional female/housewife gender role in the setting of a cookery show, cutting up quite phallic things whilst under the male gaze of a camera man."
