This one’s for all the loners out there. South Wales trio Denim Snakes (Russell Toomey, Jake Ellis Scott, and Mattise Clarke) dropped their new single Loner last Friday the 5th and we’re delighted to premiere its romantic, hilarious video. Based on a relationship between two (very charming) characters, the film-clip sees a loner getting the date of his dreams with a babe named Candy. When asked about the video, Jake Ellis Scott shared with AMBY;
“We had so much fun filming this video and coming up with the ideas. We had a very DIY attitude with this video, Jake made a cardboard TV and 7″ vinyl of the single to use as props in the video as well as filming and editing the whole thing! We created the characters ‘Calvin’ and ‘Candy’ for the video too and had a pretty good image of what they may look like in real life, maybe we’ll get Calvin to make an appearance on stage sometime! We’re really looking forward to getting back out there with our new songs, so we can get the party started again!”
The song itself is a rock and roll weirdo anthem about “the transition between being in a relationship and learning to be alone (a loner) indefinitely”. It’s an absolute banger with its infectious care-free vocals and bittersweet lyrics.
Denim Snakes are currently writing and recording new material for their sophomore record and are scheduled to drop another single in the summertime. Exclusively watch the video for Loner and follow updates from Denim Snakes below. Loner is available for download via iTunes here.
