[Video] Dancehall - Virgin
Words: Ellie Ward
We featured 'Digging' from London garage outfit Dancehall recently, and now the former members of Kill Kenada, Ice Sea Dead People and Spoilers, unveil the video for the single A-side, 'Virgin'.
Directed by guitarist Craig Sharp, who says: “The idea was to shoot the whole video in various newsagents near our practice space. Going to a newsagents to load up on Polish beer and maize-based snacks for the studio has become a bit of a ritual for us and it seemed fun to glorify that fairly normal event in slow mo. It was shot by our drummer’s brother, William Keeler and directed by me.”
'Virgin' & B-side 'Digging' were recorded live by Mark Jasper at Sound Savers Studios (Cold Pumas, Sauna Youth) and is out via Strong Island Records and Vibe/Anti-Vibe.
Dancehall play London's Tooting Tram & Social on June 21.
