Check out Shopping’s new video for ‘Suddenly Gone’

The track is taken from their most recent record, 'The Official Body'.
Shopping have shared a new video.



The clip is for ‘The Official Body’ cut ‘Suddenly Gone’. The follow up to 2015’s ‘Why Choose?’, the band’s latest full-length was released back in January via FatCat Records.



Speaking about the video, guitarist and vocalist Rachel Aggs explains: “[The Suddengly Gone video] talks about labour and resources. It’s about feeling used and undervalued in a relationship or, more generally, as a queer and/or a person of colour making music or art in the UK and how that can feel very draining.”



You can feel overlooked for years and then suddenly tokenized when your identity becomes buzzworthy or fashionable. So much of the guitar music we love originates from roots and blues music made by and for people of colour and the same goes for dance and disco that has its roots so firmly in queer culture. We are asking people to reflect on what our cultural landscape would really look like if it weren’t for those pioneering but marginalized artists and in particular what our cities will eventually look like if queer spaces and independent gig venues continue to be forced to close.”
