Scottish five-piece The LaFontaines have now launched a video for their newest single 'King'; the lead release from their upcoming debut album 'Class', coming June 8th 2015 on 889 Records.
The video features scenes from a variety of places from deserts to streets, including snowy mountains, Piccadilly Circus, a football stadium and a pilot's cockpit, with much of it apparently filmed in Morocco. It's an inclusive visual that appears to represent a lot of things, such as a journey and a desire to go global. The gritty guitar riff is infectious and melts seamlessly into the energetic rap backed by steady drums and leading up to some soaring melodies.
The group have already made a solid impact, performing their first headline shows in New York last year and supporting All Time Low in Glasgow. Now they are set to hit the road again on their UK headline tour this Summer, including a main stage slot at T In The Park festival. The album, produced by Matt O'Grady, is coming soon and frontman Kerr Okan is eagerly awaiting the release. 'Everything we've seen on the road or experienced together as a band has finally made its way onto record', he reveals. 'It's guaranteed to shock those who assume we're simply just the best live band in Scotland. There's so much depth to these songs, a load of pain and struggle, but underlying throughout all of the writing, is some real grit and determination.'
Unfortunately, however, there's a chance the group may not get to opportunity to shoot in Morocco again. 'It would appear that chancing your arm and filming without a permit, doesn't go down well in some places', Kerr says. 'We spent four hours in a holding cell in a Moroccan police station, whilst we tried to convince the authorities that we weren't working for the BBC or making a film. Next time I think we'll just head to Magaluf.'
