Treading water in the malaise of suburban domestication, Jamie (guitar/vocals), fails to find the motivation to live his best life until housemate Nicky (keys/vocals) sells his worldly possessions to buy a high-performance luxury automobile. From that point on, they and the rest of the band live for the streets; cruising the watercolour toned nights on the outskirts of cities with nothing to their name but sunglasses and a need for speed. Outlaws of the road.
The band say: “We only knew one thing: it had to be about a car. So we found a car. Everything else pretty much flowed from there.
We wanted to make a movie. We like our other videos, but this time we were really angling for a blockbuster. So we wrote the script and shopped it around, but the big studios just wouldn’t bite. Apparently 6 minutes doesn’t quite cut it for a feature these days.
There was no other option but to pull it together ourselves. Lights, camera, edit: all in-house at Tungz Productions, with a little help from our friend, Cameron Nicoll. It’s a simple but timeless story, drawing on three fundamental facets of the human condition: sadness, friendship and cars. We worked pretty hard on it, so hopefully you’ll enjoy it for at least as long as it took us to make it.“
