Having received acclaim from the likes of Radio 1’s Huw Stephens and Amazing Radio, West London band The Wild Things have also achieved success touring the US and have been featured as BBC London’s ‘featured artist of the week’. Now, having built a reputation for their energy-fuelled live shows and their very own ‘Wild Things Bawl’ live nights, they are back with a brand new video. And we get to have an exclusive peek behind the scenes of its creation…
Directed by Marcus Maschwitz, who has worked with Fall Out Boy, Bring Me The Horizon and 30 Seconds To Mars, the video for ‘Loaded Gun’ contains stylish black and white footage of Sydney, Cameron, Rob and Pete preparing to unleash another impassioned slice of infectious indie-rock to our ears and eyes.
With the exclusive behind the scenes footage containing snippets of the pulsating beats, throbbing hooks and rich, raw grit of Sydney’s vocals to be found in the powerful new single, we cannot wait to see the final cut very soon!
Of the track, Sydney explains:
“‘Loaded Gun’ started in our studio with a simple riff. Every time Cam played it, I heard the phrase Loaded Gun over and over. It felt too badass and too fun not to roll with, so we worked on bringing each section of the track back to that motif. The mental image of it is so striking that it really informed the direction of the track. It quickly became our live set highlight and hasn’t been out of the setlist since! It’s so exciting to come on and bust it out because you know immediately everyone’s gonna sit up and pay attention.”
‘Loaded Gun’ is out 17th November, and you can watch the exclusive behind the scenes video here:
