Sydney-based alternative-rock trio RedHook have just unveiled their hyperactive video clip for ‘Kamikaze feat. Will King’ – filmed, directed and edited by Brandon Lung (Stand Atlantic, Polaris) with assistance from Yeah Rad Creative (The Dead Love, FANGZ).
Lead singer Emmy Mack comments on the clip: "Because this song is so fast-paced and aggro, we shelved our trademark kooky narratives and went for a more aesthetic, performance-based clip to capture some of the intensity and haywire energy of our live show and the song itself. The frenetic camera movements and dizzying lighting techniques reflect the themes of impending danger as the song’s protagonist hurtles towards their destruction.
Embarrassingly, I ended up in the ER after we filmed it from going a bit too hard trying to do a bunch of jumps and kicks in these giant emo platform boots and stacking it big time - thought I'd fractured my hand!”
RedHook recently embarked on an EP headline tour throughout April and May, including multiple sold out shows in Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide and Melbourne. They will be appearing as part of the music line-up of Sydney extreme sports festival District X alongside Hands Like Houses and Houses and Hooligan Hefs in October, before joining the likes of Northlane and In Hearts Wake at the inaugural Full Tilt Festival in Sydney in late November.
