SPINN have shared a new video for ‘Stargazing’ – the latest single to be taken from their forthcoming second album ‘Outside Of The Blue’
With the album now set to be released in February 2022, rather than its original 5th November impact date (thanks, vinyl delays), the new clip was directed by collaborator Luca Crawford-Bailey, and is a nod to the 2014 horror flick, ‘A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night’ – in which frontman Johnny Quinn found the inspiration behind the song. .
“It’s brilliant and it’s about this woman who is a vampire in this really rough fictional town in Iran called ‘Bad Town’.” explains Quinn. “She basically goes around and kills all the drug dealers and s**t, but then she falls in love with this guy who looks like James Dean. I don’t really cover that aspect in the song, but I just liked the way the person doing all the gory killing in the film was actually a woman. It’s so different to the sort of traditional horror films, where it’s always the woman getting chased by the big bad man.
“The video is something I’m really proud of, naturally from the start I knew I wanted to make a mini horror movie, that was the plan from the start. I worked really hard alongside Luca Crawford-Bailey and Arris Roussos to get the idea across and I think it turned out brilliantly. It was really cool working alongside Catriona Chandler too, she’s got a brilliant future in acting ahead so we were all made up to have her involved in the shoot. It was a lot of fun to film, and was fuelled by cheap wine to keep us all warm in the cold suburban Liverpool night.”
