Video: Shocking Pinks - Double Vision Version

Thursday 18th February, 2016 1:30PM

A new video directed by Ian Jorgensen (aka Blink) has been unveiled for Shocking Pinks' rare song 'Double Vision Version'. Shot on 8mm film during the bands recent 60 date world tour through China, Europe, UK, USA, Australia and NZ, the grainy clip captures the mood of being in a smoke-filled dance club in the middle of nowhere.

Jorgensen says of his creation: "'Double Vision Version' is one of my favourite local tracks and I wanted to make a video that didn’t distract from the song at all. I wanted the video to reflect what Guilt Mirrors era songs feel like to me - to be textural, ambiguous and not entirely accessible - rewarding upon multiple listens. Shocking Pinks songs to be have always felt film-like and if I learnt anything while accompanying them on this tour, its that they don’t like to be brightly lit."

‘Double Vision Version’ was released only on the sold-out vinyl edition of Shocking Pinks’ Guilt Mirrors - but has never been available digitally. A fan favourite live, to date the only trace of this song online has been a live video filmed at A Low Hum House. The track is now available as double A-side single backed with ‘Motel’, which is free to download from the Shocking Pinks Bandcamp page. But before you head over there, soak up the video below...

Shocking Pinks are headlining the Wilson Stage at the upcoming Newtown Festival in Wellington on 6th March. for more information
