SPQR Release Atmospheric Shadow Puppet Video For New Single 'Slowly'
Liverpool-based Alt/Art Rock trio SPQR kick off a busy 2019 by revealing a painstakingly crafted and thoroughly engaging shadow puppet video for their latest single ‘Slowly’, out now on Modern Sky UK. Crafted and directed by drummer Bex Denton, and scripted by front man Peter Harrison, the video took the band two months to make entirely by hand, and follows the character of Timmy, a lost soul who goes to the depths of despair and back again on surrealist philosophical journey of self-discovery. Commenting on the video, Denton explains: “The idea for the video come from a serendipitous telepathic link up between me and Pete. I suggested the aesthetic I envisaged, and the script that Pete came up with for it fitted perfectly. It’s the first video idea we’ve ever actually agreed on—hence why this is our first one! It was filmed over 2 months in my living room, using a phone sellotaped to a cymbal stand and a shit load of black cardboard.”
