We’ve already given you a listen to, ElectroPop producer extraordinaire now maker of slick Nu-Disco, Starsmith’s début single, ‘Give Me A Break’/’Knuckleduster’, and now you can check the video for ‘Give Me A Break’.
Maybe I over analyse, but I couldn’t help thinking ‘flippin’ hell, that must have taken so long in editing!’ while watching this stop-motion insanity.
Anyway, it’s really nicely put together and despite it obviously being set in New York (or somewhere similar) it’s got a nice British Punky fell to it. The use of different print processes for the various animations gives it quite a ‘cut-out fanzine’ vibe which might seem at odds with a smooth soulful disco track, but it’s really really not, it works awesomely!
‘Give Me A Break’/’Knuckleduster’ is released 11th October on limited edition 12”.
