Kamikaze Girls have this morning unleashed a video for their scuzzy new track ‘Stitches’ – watch the clip below, first on Upset. The Leeds/London duo – guitarist Lucinda Livingstone and drummer Conor Dawson – release their debut EP ‘Sad’ on 2nd September through Bearded Punk Records (UK/EU) and Wiretap Records (US) (pre-order at itsokaytobesad.com).
“The song itself is about anxiety towards being settled and not wanting to stay in the same place for too long, to the point of just getting rid of everything you own and moving away; something I did myself this time last year,” explains Lucinda. “With the video we wanted to recreate that feeling of being anxious and nervous and unsettled to the point where you’re almost dizzy from it and everything gets a little mixed up.
“We shot the video in just four hours in Conor’s garage, which after about twenty minutes of shooting turned into a sweatbox inside, while raining the whole time outside. The garage was so small we couldn’t fit all of us in while filming so in between shots I mostly just cowered on Conor’s doorstep trying not to get soaking wet.”
