So if you’re recovering from a pretty heavy night last night, ‘Rat Race’, the new music video from Enter Shikari probably not what you want to be watching. Two reasons why – firstly, its pretty LOUD, secondly, frontman Rou Reynolds seems to have grown a fairly odd looking beard..
Anyway, massive props to the guys from pushing the boat out on techno / rock / whatever genre you’d like to try and class them as. (I’m gonna be honest with you, halfway through the video I paused it, because I thought it must be playing twice in my browser. It wasn’t. That was just the song..).
Right. So Enter Shikari‘s new video for ‘The Paddington Frisk’ is only 1:24 long. That’s a bit weird. Oh, and it seems to be a Japanese TV show featuring a dinosaur hanging itself. Then the band do some strange kind of macarena dance.
Can’t tell if this is the band poking fun at others in the rock music world for taking themselves too seriously, or if frontman Rou Reynolds just woke up with a really crazy idea and then went for it..
I’d like to say something more in-depth about this, but having watched the video 3 times now, I still have no idea what he’s saying for most of it. Instead, let’s focus on the fact that whilst watching, The Jonas Brothers ‘Pom Poms’ came up as a suggested video. So we should all just remember that there are much, much worse things to listen to out there. Right, I’m done. Enjoy:
Who likes a bit of ethical fashion? I definitely do. It’s nice knowing that your clothes aren’t the result of some poor child slaving away in a factory somewhere. (Not to mention the actual clothing quality is normally better)
If you’re looking to fill up your wardrobe for spring, a good place to start would be Enter Shikari frontman Rou Reynolds’ clothing line ‘Step Up’. Focusing on fair trade and organic cotton, plus some items having up to 50% of profits going to Amnesty International, it’s a pretty guilt free shopping trip.
Have a look for yourselves here. RC xx
