Scandinavian producers Rebeat pay tribute to zombie culture with the tongue-in-cheek video for their upcoming new single 'Walking Dead', due to be released on August 10th 2014 through Champion Records.
The video has been directed by Jarno Lee Vinsencius and begins with an underwear clad couple lying in bed. When the girl gets up to get dressed, the guy tries to stop her leaving and they have an aggressive dispute before she disappears into the street where no less than three dancing cheerleader zombies approach her. Also featuring images of leather clad club goers, a Slash wannabe busker and a man in a Guy Fawkes mask, the video represents every bit the wild vibe behind the song with its summery, slightly rock-infused dance beat and intense crescendos.
The duo, who are Denmark native Kevin Romerdal and Rasmus Bergdahl from Sweden, have been making music together since their mid teens but joined to make Rebeat in 2012. There have been several excellent remixes of the track so far from the likes of Calvertron, The Future Funk Squad and Tannergaard. Rebeat have a few upcoming live dates in Europe this summer including the
HTC Day & Night festival in Novalja, Croatia on July 14th.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
