Clipping’s “Shooter”, a standout from Wriggle, the group’s massive EP from earlier this year, now has an official video, directed by Carlos Lopez-Estrada.
Clipping’s William Hutson says of the visual and song, “Since the beginning of the band, we had discussed making a dance video for one of our songs but didn’t think we could actually pull it off. When Voltaire Wade-Green offered to choreograph something for us, we jumped at the chance to work with him and the other dancers (all of whom were Hamilton ensemble members at the time). He and Carlos conceived the video together based on the scenarios of gun violence depicted in the song’s lyrics, and managed to match the cheery tone of the song to the seriousness of its themes.”
Clipping’s ‘Wriggle’ and ‘Splendor & Misery’ EPs are out now on Sub Pop / Inertia. You can watch the video for ‘Shooter’ below;
