Australia’s Redhook have shared a new video for ‘Kamikaze’, which features a guest spot from Windwaker vocalist, Will King.
Taken from the band’s recently released debut EP, ‘Bad Decision’, the video for the track was directed by Brandon Lung (Stand Atlantic, Polaris).
Redhook vocalist Emmy Mack has revealed the story behind the video.
“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!”
