Stringer Bell

(Video Premiere)


by tom johnson

Wonderfully captivating, Nottingham’s experimental percussive duo RATTLE, today share a brand new video for latest track ‘Stringer Bell‘ and it makes for an often mesmerising proposition. Filmed by Sleaford Mods photographer, Simon Parfrement, the video is a simple film that highlights the brilliant creativity of the bands blueprint; alluring vocals, complex drums, and subtle dashes of instrumentation.

The full album is released in early August, via Upset The Rhythm, and this is a brilliant appetite-whetter; a short, sharp, preview that shows there really is nobody else like them in the current UK scene. Check out the video below; foreword by the band themselves with a little more context regarding the film:

“We made this video in Nottingham with Simon Parfrement, best known for his photos and videos of Sleaford Mods. Simon took some great portraits of us two years ago minutes before a flash flood and we were stoked that he wanted to make a Rattle video. We filmed this in the attic of One Thoresby Street, artist studio spaces in Nottingham. Editing drum hits to drum beats was going to be a challenge but Simon has, as usual done an amazing job, the drums look warm and lively and we had fun animating the percussion overdubs. There was even another flash flood, and lightning was flashing on us through the windows as we were filming takes.”

The band’s self-titled debut is released on Aug 5th, via Upset The Rhythm/I Own You
