Shooting the VIDEO for I DON’T NOT LOVE YOU

So, the video for our next single ‘I DONT NOT LOVE YOU’ - has been shot, recorded and edited..how exciting. It was filmed in just one day in Walthamstow…Alot of love and respect to Marcus Sharp and Sam Crack - they directed the whole thing and came up with the concept, ideas and artistic love. We also used a very beautiful Spanish girl, Penelope Cruz watch ya back…

The concept of the track is well…love…being completely infatuated with someone and not having the courage to admit your love for them, finding it hard to get the words and the tense feelings surrounding that..its kind of a story in that by the end the character (me..you..whoever) gains the strength to admit their love…simple tale of love..there we go.
Below are a few stills from the vid to wet your appetites..it should be up on myspace and a TV channel near you in the next couple of weeks..I (sam - lead singer) get slapped in it…whoever can see any blemishes or cuts, gets a free t-shirt..

see that anger…slap hurt…

Locarno

Locarno is our next single released on the 9th March on Blue Flowers again. We’ll be releasing it digitally and on limited vinyl..like 500 i think.

Let us know your thoughts - we went into the studio with legendary producer Stephen Street (blur/Kaiser Chiefs/The Smiths etc) who very kindly offered it to us for free..It turned out that we were the last band to ever record at the Olympic Studios - pipped U2 by mere minutes.

We’re very happy with the recording but are still keen to really define our sound and get back in the studio - It’s always hard to transform a demo into a fully fledged recording. We know a few of you might miss the old version - however, we wrote that song when we were 17, nearly two years ago and have moved on so much we felt we had to move the song on…We’re still keen to keep it rough and raw and hopefully that comes across..but we thought it only right to develop the track itself and let it reflect another step forward..

We’ll be releasing an EP in May with 2 new tracks on it, which we hope will really draw a line on our ‘old’ demos, help to define our sound and shift us up a gear towards the future. We have a ton of new tracks which we’re very proud of already - you can a few if you come see us live. If not wait until the next releases.

your thoughts are as always appreciated……

oh..and to keep everyone happy - we’ll be releasing the older ‘demo’ version of Locarno on itunes in the single bundle…there.we.go……
