London drum and bass band Animal Music launch a video for their new single 'Mr. Brightside'; an interesting cover of the original classic hit by The Killers, which they released in 2004. The single came out earlier this month (June 2015) through MUK Records.
The video features frontman Pete Pocket and Penny For The DJ applying make-up while miming along to the song (though Pete a little less expertly than Penny) before smearing their lipstick at the end. It's far from the lively guitar number that it was, featuring trip hop synth waves, heavy drums and a crescendo of electric buzzing, as well as very strongly London vocals.
The band; who are singers Pete and Tom Sutcliffe, DJ Penny and drummer Andy McKenzie; decided to take on the track because it was one of their all-time favourites, even if it was a risky decision. 'We are aware that this is a bold move. A Marmite move. Maybe even a kamikaze move', Pete says. 'However music and art isn't about playing it safe and we love what we have ended up with.' The single follows their critically acclaimed debut 'We Stay Vacant', which they will soon follow with an album this year. They also feature on the soundtrack for the new movie 'Legacy'.
